Greece was built so long ago
from wood and paper and string
with tools that were made of bronze–
tools used for everything!
Copper came from outcrop one,
and tin from mountain two.
Brought by horses to bronze smiths
who knew just what to do.
Up in the Rockies many years later,
miners smashed rocks with their picks,
digging out iron or a fortune in gold,
no matter how many licks.
Without miners there’d be no computer,
no phone, no road, no house,
and when you flushed the toilet,
no pipes to carry it out.
Who knows what treasure is hidden–
maybe diamonds or silver or tin!
That’s why I put my finger up to my nose
and DIG IN!!!!
