    Storm’s A-Coming

    God said to

    Build boat.

    Storm’s a-coming—

    It’ll float.

    Tell animals

    The big news:

    Gonna go on

    Lengthy cruise.

    Noah took

    Loons, lice,

    Frogs, flies,

    Monkeys, mice,

    Poodles, pigs,

    Worms, whales,

    Crickets, crows,

    Snakes, snails,

    Aardvarks, ants,

    Boars, baboons,

    Oysters, owls,

    Rats, raccoons,

    ’Gators, goats,

    Horses, hogs,

    Eagles, eels,

    Donkeys, dogs,

    Lizards, lambs,

    Cheetahs, chicks,

    Kittens, quails,

    Tigers, ticks,

    Camels, cows,

    Buzzards, bees,

    Rabbits, rams,

    Pheasants, fleas.

    All aboard—

    Pretty tight.

    Many sounds—

    What a sight!

    Lesson’s clear

    For us to hear:

    Noah prayed,

    Then obeyed!
