When the Heatwave Hit Nebraska

When the heatwave hit Nebraska
the cows keeled over dead—
Not really dead, but nearly dead,
(at least that’s what the farmers said)
when the heat wave hit Nebraska.

When the heatwave hit Nebraska
the cornfields went bone dry—
Not real bones, just dirt and stones.
The baking skies were filled with moans
when the heatwave hit Nebraska.

When the heatwave hit Nebraska
they packed silos to the gills—
Not real gills, but with their skills
the farmers packed corn high as hills
when the heatwave hit Nebraska.

When the heatwave hit Nebraska,
The corn began to pop—
Pop and pop and didn’t stop
through the roof and out the top
when the heatwave hit Nebraska.

Since the heatwave hit Nebraska
there won’t be corn this year,
but there’s a ton, of popcorn fun…
Come visit and enjoy the sun!
Since the heatwave hit Nebraska.
