There once was a girl

There once was a girl
Who sat at the lake
Thinking to herself
She said, this is a mistake.

The lake is all dry
Nothing but mud.
What was once so pretty,
Is now just a dud.

What could have happened
To all that water.
What about the fish? 
They don't just get up and wonder.

Then she saw it in the middle
A hole had form, the size of her fist.
What could I do?
How can I fix this?

I can walk out there and fill the whole
Then the water can no longer escape.
The rain will come and fill it up
Make it once again a lake.

Now the water is rising up,
The hole still filled with my hand.
This probably wasn't a great idea.
I shouldn't be here, I should be on land.

There once was a girl
Who sat in the lake.
Thinking to herself
She said, this was a mistake.
