I wrote this rhyme for my sister’s play school for the junior science fair. It is an attempt to make children understand the importance of electricity and how it has made our lives easy and that we should save it or else our coming generations would crave for it. I hope you enjoy it with your little ones!
Benjamin Franklin has done a great deed,
He discovered electricity!
Without electricity our lives would be so dull!
Dull Dull Dull!
Our lives would be so dull.
How could we have turned on the lights?
Dark Dark Dark!
At night, our lives would be so dark!
How could we get cool air of the fans?
Sweat Sweat Sweat!
We would be wet in our sweat!
How would we have cleaned our laundry everyday?
Wash Wash Wash!
We would have to wash without the wash-ing machine!
How would we call our friends?
Tring Tring Tring!
There would be no phones to ring!
Where would we store our ice-cream?
Dream Dream Dream!
We all would dream of ice-cream!
How would our lives be easy?
Easy Easy easy!
We all would be so busy!
Therefore, save electricity as I say!
Save Save Save!
Or else the future would crave!
