The World’s Disasters

In England, 
the Houses of Parliament
Are full of protestors.
This, that, this, that.
In Buckingham Palace – the teas are being spilt.
The Queen is bumping up and down
In her throne.
Just because of the Space Angel Bat.

In Australia,
people are getting
Squashed like pancakes.
Splat, splat, splat.
The Space Angel lies there.
Roar, roar, roar.
In Sydney people’s eyes pop out
Pop, pop, pop.
Just because of the Space Bat Angel

In America,
pictures fall off Californian walls.
Smash, smash, smash.
In Hollywood pop stars record their songs
Deafening people.
Shriek, shriek, shriek.
All because of the Space Bat Angel.

In Africa, 
goats bump up and down
lost in an earthquake.
People bump 
Up, down, up down.
Like the Queen in England.

All because of the Space Bat Angel.
