Hovercraft – Vehicle Rhyme
Hovercraft is such a graceful automobile… it can float on water and it can race on land! It’s quite versatile. Here is a song that tells you all you need to know about hovercraft. It’s one of the most novel vehicles you’ll ever find.
I’m a hovercraft, an amphibious vehicle,
I’m also called an air cushion vehicle!
From land to water, from water to land,
I travel over ice and mud and sand!
I may look quite like a boat to you,
But I am not one, and that is true.
I don’t sail in water on high and low tides,
But on a cushion of air I simply slide!
My parts are propellers, fans, and a fin,
A rudder, an air-cushion and an engine!
All around the air-cushion is my skirt,
That helps me glide with minimum effort!
For the military I am very precious,
In ferrying cargo and passengers, I’m gracious!
I’m used in search and rescue operations,
I’m quite popular in sports and recreation!
As I glide above, and not on surfaces,
Very efficient indeed are my services.
To run, much fuel I don’t really need,
I make less noise, and great is my speed!
However, steep hills I simply can’t climb;
Thorny bushes to me are rather unkind;
If you haven’t yet, you must check me out,
I’m extraordinary without a doubt!
