We all smell bad, we're covered in ticks
in case you couldn't guess, we're straight-up hicks
It's a hundred degrees, with the sun beatin' down,
You may have a heat stroke and fall to the ground
We testin' the water and playin' in dirt
you better be careful or you might get hurt
Identifying trees, we're good--that's no joke,
Pine, dogwood, even red and white oak
We lookin' for beetles, salamanders, and bugs,
we wearin' our waders, we rollin' like thugs
You get stuck in the mud, so you might get wet,
but with this scholarship our futures are set
This rap was written by Megan Parker from Laurel County, one of the Robinson Scholars that I am working with this week at the Water Pioneers program. The scholars are learning about water quality, insects, forestry, and other fun stuff. At this very moment (9:38am at the Kentucky Leadership Center in Jabez, KY), they are getting ready to present their community action plans!!
