Avalanches from mud or from snow
can easily tumble straight down.
So to sleep well it is better to know
a barrier can save the town.
This is what people have learned to do
to cope with disasters and such.
We are not really prepared, it is true,
but even the little helps much.
An effective prevention of danger might be
no longer our nature to hamper,
but protect and manage in time to see
how we could save it and pamper.
