The World had turned into a wicked place.
This left God most displeased.
Demons and giants roamed the earth;
Many people were hurt and teased
God knew that something had to be done
To destroy the evil upon the earth.
He chose one good man to help him,
To bring about the world’s rebirth
This last good man was Noah
So God had him do something strange
He told him to build a boat (an ark)
And explained how things would change:
“I will bring a great and terrible flood”
“All life on earth will surely die”.
Only Noah and his family would be safe
As the rains fell from the sky
God told Noah to bring some animals:
One male and female of every kind
But of some (and the birds) He said “bring seven”.
All the others he should leave behind
The ark looked like a huge wooden house
But this house was made to float.
Noah’s family could live within it,
Leaving the bad people to jeer and gloat
Years later, when the ark was built
Noah and his wife walked aboard.
On went their sons and their wives too;
Then the animals
And the food they had stored
Everybody else still behaved badly
When God closed the ark’s big door.
They had mocked Noah and his loved ones
But soon, they would laugh no more…
