It's not nice to fool Mother Nature
This post has been awarded 9 stars by 2 readers.

It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.
There was panic in the streets and you could hear the people scream
Calm down you people, you should be glad we add an hour to your day
Extra time to sleep and more to work and an addition to your pay
We refuse the tyranny of nature's laws; we follow the laws of man
We've turned day to night and night to day just because we can
Mother Nature's old she's tired and out of tune, she never will be hip
In this modern world we do what we want it just takes a little chip
You just plug it in and bing bang boom your water turns to wine
You silly fools you just can't see our world is in decline
When Ms. Nature's laws go obeyed, the penalties are severe
And after your world is bare and broken, it's too late to shed a tear
