How do churches stop the rain ?
And send the downpours down the drain ?
That’s pretty simple to explain –
The footings hold the buttress,
And the buttress holds the flyer,
And the flyer holds the springing,
And the springing takes the strain.
The spring ribs hold the keystone,
And the keystone holds the kingpost,
And the kingpost holds the rafters –
Both the common and the main.
The rafters holds the purlins,
And the purlins holds the sheathing,
And the sheathing holds the shingles,
And the shingles stop the rain.
