Acidity

Acidic water.
Dumped chemicals, dangerous, so unhealthy it is embarrassing.
Lover of eating, drinking, and being healthy.
Who wishes for it to be like our river was before.
Instead fear lives with eating and drinking come to play.
Children being used in suing commercials instead of going out to play.
In hope that the Flint River will be the way it’s supposed to be today.
Healthy and pure.
