Blood the story : for children

Blood, blood,wonderful blood..
It’s needed by all who are not made of wood.
Blood  runs throughout us in arteries and veins.
It may feel quite pleasant  when it feeds our
forebrains.

Blood,blood sing it again.
Blood for all women and blood for all men.
I’d like to see it on some kind of scan…
As it runs down  to my feet and back  up to my brain.

Even when we are  all asleep in the night
Our blood is still working to keep us alive.
Let us be merry and drink plenty of tea.
Then we won’t run out of  the water for wee.

For  the kidneys are filters which take out the dross
And it flows down to the bladder till out it gets passed
So the kidneys are partners with our own life blood.
Isn’t that clever and isn’t life good?
