I’m stunning, magnificent, white;
To artists, a constant delight.
My picture adorns many walls
Of dining rooms, offices, halls.
My figure is perfect; I’m swell.
I do have a temper as well:
The anger is boiling within—
An outburst about to begin.
I’m sick of the state of our land
Where hooligans are in command.
For nature they have no respect,
Refusing our parks to protect.
Beware of my temper! Stay back!
I’m having an anger attack
And switching to fiery mode.
I’m Hekla—about to explode.
