Noah gathered two species of each kind
as rush ran through his occupied mind.
First: The buffalo and the cow
supplying milk for babies to grow.
Second: The wild goat and the sheep,
Third: the fowls according to their breed.
Fourth: The lion and the lioness,
Fifth: the tiger and the tigress.
Sixth: The wolf and the dog,
Seventh: the pig and wart hog.
Eighth: The colt and the filly,
Ninth: The elephant and the monkey.
Tenth: The cobra and the reptile
Eleventh: the giraffe and the gazelle.
Twelfth: The rooster and the raccoon,
Thirteenth: the zebra and baboon.
Noah's Ark was built by Hebrews who were so bold,
but it had limited space in its chambers of hard wood.
A thousand species he saved from extinction,
we should remember him for his compassion.
For forty days and and nights it floated miles
away from shore, not seeing flickering lights.
Most importantly, he saved the Human Race
while Mankind was drowned by violent waves.
Noah took all animals aboard by offering them refuge,
he definitely was the Captain of the universal deluge.
