I recently watched a documentary on The Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. During this time, the nation was hit with economic hardship. It started with the stock market crash of 1929, and then severe droughts caused massive dust storms that choked the land in the early 1930s.
Needless to say, I wrote a haiku about this moment in history!
The barren land thirsts
Dust clouds mountains tall choke life
The Great Depression
