The Power of Nature 2

The splashes of the flowing milk and honey Are the intricate rhythms of nature As night falls to usher the break of dawn, Mr. Kingfisher goes fishing by the lake And Dr. Starling stares all night long at the stars Whilst Mrs. Woodpecker pecks at the mukwa wood And Miss Jellyfish wriggles arrogantly Showing off her new pyjamas. The sky weeps vividly And its tears fill the earth The heavens are filled with rage and fury They huff, they puff and blow furiously Wavering Mr. Eucalyptus ‘till he’s off his feet Only with aid of the sky force soldier: Lieutenant Colonel Lightning. The overwhelming powers from the underworld Cause vigorous vibrations Moving the earth’s foundations The roaring thunder hisses from the skies Devastating engines from below divide the earth into plates Moving large lands and colliding high rises A demolishing power is at work Never to be understood.
