They Blast The Beaufort To Chart Their Map

They blast the Beaufort to chart their map
The seismic bounce gives avaricious underview
In Bytown little children take their nap.

As caribou hooves on tundra clomp and clap
The village anticipates a pot of stew
They blast the Beaufort to chart their map.

The ice is a bugger a badger trap
It will entice with a story that is not true
In Bytown little children take their nap.

Black oil is not sugar Maple’s sweet sap
Although both rich liquors will stick to you
They blast the Beaufort to chart their map.

Since time immemorial the Arctic’s ice cap
Provided for life deep beneath the blue
In Bytown little children take their nap.

It’s a crime to pollute with foul crap
A bigger crime to ignore the screw
They blast the Beaufort to chart their map
In Bytown little children take their nap.
