Man knows that elements are strong,
stronger than man, as we do know.
This knowledge never proved us wrong,
water and wind can stir a show.
So we build strongholds, blocks of stone
or concrete walls to keep storms out.
Thanks to big machines alone
elements don’t completely rout.
However, earthquakes, avalanches,
tsunamis, cyclones or a fire
demand all knowledge of all branches
so that we keep what we acquire.
