One Earthquake At A Time
Upheaval can take millions of years to start,
Then mountains pile up and tear sea beds apart,
And when land crashes into land,
Things disappear in the sand.
The history of the world, written in rock,
Reveals results of the after shock,
Years of cracks show the sign,
Things change one Earthquake at a time.
