VIEWPOINTS

Kid with a wet cloth slopping on the floor:
Water dropping everywhere and trickles free.
Mum comes dashing in the door  -
Can’t you try to make less mess for me?
I have to clean this now and go down on my knee!


Oh mum, please don’t wipe it all away  -
And leave that big wiggly trickle to run.
This is a map of South America I’ve drawn today
And that’s the mighty River Amazon.
In all the world, it’s the biggest one.

Note

Pretty close to the truth, for as  kid I was a map-o-holic, (still am),
and drew maps freehand whenever I had  the chance.
