What the Earth is Like

C (dd-7) has written a song, which I post for you all here. We have been suggesting she submit it at school for the upcoming poetry contest. It, um, kind of fizzles out at the end, but it has potential.

What the Earth Is Like

Once there was an earth with no soil or dirt
Once there was an earth with no grass
Once there was an earth with no flowers or trees
Once there was an earth with no blue sky
Once there was an earth with no dark black sky
Once there was an earth with no sun.

Let us make some soil and dirt
Let us make some grass
Let us make some flowers and trees
Let us make a blue sky
Let us make a dark black sky
Let us make a sun
Let us make a moon.

Now the earth has everything.
And that's what the earth is supposed to be like.
