Muddy Trenches

#Promptuarium

These canals were once full

Boats and ships travelled up and down

Collecting Goods and cargo

But somewhere,

where the canal met the river

a grown up scout thought he’d have some fun

He created a dam,

by a campsite ridge

and the water stopped at the spot

Interested Beavers

Marvelled at the scouts work

as the stream dried up beyond it

Fish fled for safer spots

as the water stopped flowing

and stayed behind the wall

And sea birds stood perplexed

wandering why the water had simply

disappeared
