Beaver taking wood away
to build a new house.
Somewhere along the creek bed
where water flows deep.
He took the wood from loose boards
found in a pile waiting
for our new house to be built;
before we can settle in our cozy den.
But why take our wood? There are trees
where you plan to build.
Finding wood from disappearing forest
at a cost is hard now for you making
us pay more to finish our house instead.
