Earthquake! Earthquake!
All in all, a mighty powerful shake.
That seems like an attempt by Nature,
To rearrange your furniture,
By Jove! Nature a zealous attempt doth make!

this reminds me of the poem-song
'Oliphaunt' by JRR Tolkien.
It's an amazing piece.

It goes:

Grey as a mouse,
Big as a house,
Nose like a snake,
I make the earth shake,
As I tramp through the grass;
Trees crack as I pass.
With horns in my mouth
I walk in the South,
Flapping big ears.
Beyond count of years
I stump round and round,
Never lie on the ground,
Not even to die.
Oliphaunt am I,
Biggest of all,
Huge, old, and tall.
If ever you'd met me
You wouldn't forget me.
If you never do,
You won't think I'm true;
But old Oliphaunt am I,
And I never lie.

to be very honest, it reminds me of 'the road song of the bandar-log' in the jungle book

Here we go in a flung festoon,
Half-way up to the jealous moon!
Don't you envy our pranceful bands?
Don't you wish you had extra hands?
Wouldn't you like if your tails were so
Curved in the shape of a Cupid's bow?
Now you're angry, but--never mind,
Brother, thy tail hangs down behind!

Nice wit

this reminds me of the song nonsense by cursive

does it matter now, what the songs about?
does it matter now, what the songs about?
