The Rivers God/Authority and Jeremy Fisher

Of the 64 flood warnings, issued tonight, Jeremy,
17 of them are severe.

The buttercups by your door will go and the
deep waters become unclear.

What will become of the minnows, then, Sir?
The deep-swimming trout and the pike?

I cannot abide to serve dinner, Sir
That the Alderman and Sir Newton dislike.
