When an Indonesian volcano blows on Irian Java,
You FLEE--there are no negotiations with flowing lava.
When a tsunami is sighted heading towards land,
discerning quickly what to carry in your hand.
Climate changes occur from day to day, here and abroad,
Our best response is to consider which actions to laud.
Yesterday, we left our Ottawa University's board meeting in Phoenix,
Saturday morning's downpour made for rare desert scenics.
The desert was soaked, the desert bloomed, the water flowing,
Some OU visionary minds have succeeded, the results are showing.
The dorms, the athletic facilities have sprung forth from the desert floor,
Our OU meeting laid out imminent plans to build even more.
How about you friend? Are you excited? Fingers tapping..
1,500 BC, Jacob spoke to his sons, caught them napping.
Why are you sitting here? Moaning of no food, no meat?
Get down to Egypt in this famine, get us some food to eat.
So it is with us my friends, the OU greenhouse is about to bloom,
We are going to provide seeds and soil, a growing room.
So God, thank you for the desert rain, as I scramble to load my luggage,
And providing ambition and resources, needs met for some farmers' tuggage.

Dave likes to put together words to make poems. Sometimes the rhythms are great and sometimes they are a stretch. Either way they will make you think, make you laugh, make you wonder what's going on with Dave. :)
