DIRT

As you dig
More and more
A variety of things
Is in there galore

From rocks to trash
To seltzer cans
To wooden chairs
And frying pans

From roots to bugs
And mysterious things
Or you may even find
Some diamond rings

Playing cards and
Arrowheads
And perhaps some books
That people have read

So just keep digging
And keep in mind
There are many things
You can find

From wooden blocks
To china dolls
To bowling pins
And rubber balls

From money to clothes
And children’s toys
To many pictures
Of girls and boys

So dig on forever
‘Cause you may find
Something in the ground
That’s one of a kind
