God said I will submerge this sod,
To build a float Noah got the nod.
Can I have help he pled.
This is a big job he said,
From your family - you can pick,
But not of the world - for it is sick.
They begin to build day after day,
And not one complaint did they say.
Now his neighbors thought it silly,
And laughed and laughed really.
The days came and the days went,
Many long hours Noahs bunch spent.
Noah told the world his plan for a boat,
To fill it with animals a pig and a goat.
Their queries were -Why be so dauntless,
Your boat wont float in this wilderness.
Year after year the world dis jointed,
They just lifted their hands and pointed.
Years passed the boat began to take shape.
For in it Noahs bunch would escape.
The time came for them to embark,
The world it would not heed nor hark.
Drops of rain began to stir the dust,
The weathermans records did bust.
Standing at the dock hands in their coat,
It has sailed away they have missed the boat.
