Damn, I love a bog!
Not quite a lake
Not quite a swamp
It’s just right in between
And dangerous as all get out!
I’ve heard tale they’ve dragged entire horse skeletons out of bogs.
Entire Quaker families out of bogs.
Once they discovered an entire museum devoted to bogs inside a bog!

Bogs don’t have to take shit from nobody.
Since the beginning of time the bog has feared no living thing.
Bogs take what they want with no apology.
Bogs have endless appetites.
Bogs live to hear the shrieks of those unfortunate to step inside their soupy parlor.
Bogs have no desire to become solid, to stand their ground.
Bogs don’t need to hear from other bogs.
Their lives suck as they suck lives.
Bogs are bad ass.

    I have never understood why people think bogs are dangerous. I have walked on many bog mats in the north where they are more common. I must report someone would have to try very hard to get hurt. It is kind of like walking across a large bouncy house while getting your ankles wet.

    In our area bogs are rare. I would ask people to not walk in any of our bogs. My reason is not because bogs are dangerous. Only a little of this habitat is left that we cannot afford to have any trampled.
