Now is time to teach your son or daughter
what happens when the earth has too much water.
It's called a flood.

And every child of every worried mother
should know a temblor sets the earth to shudder
as an earthquake.

As every natural disaster follows fast and follows faster
it's time to froth up in a rage and get the children all engaged.
If you still doubt
why there's no trout
it could just be that there's a drought!!

But what's much worse is when the trees spontaneously combust
just like a lake of fire that burns the evil with the just.
Oh wee ones, scatter like a nest of liars
and go in fear of forest fires!!

Cyclones set the water spinning,
land slides , well, theyre sliding land,
epidemics, they're like sniffles, sneezes,
and pox it's time we made a stand!

So for things environmental
let's strive for sustainable, developmental.

ok, where do I collect my prize?
