There once was a fellow named Landon McGee
who went to where waterfalls fell in the sea.
He stepped on the edge of a slippery ledge,
which wasn’t so lucky for Landon McGee.
He fell in the fall and he never returned.
So this is the lesson that Landon has learned:
It’s fine to go over to see all the falls,
but never go over the falls to the sea.
