Silent Spring

(To the tune of “Silent Night”)

Silent Spring.  Everything
Changed at once.  Gone, ka-ching
Rachel Carson showed DDT
Acts on birds pre-fer-en-ti-al-ly
Now they’re endangered species
Lots of endangered species
Silent Spring.  Sad we sing
Fewer birds . . . on the wing
All because of a pesticide
Poison distributed all the worldwide
Now that the songbirds are gone
No birds to sing at the dawn
