Sharing the blog love Matt, Melody & Jenners have passed on a Friends Award to me. Isn’t that sweet? Well, as you know I’m always behind so I’m breaking blog rules and not passing it on to individual names but instead I’ll pass this poem on to all of you.
I was in the mood for some fun poetry and I thought, it’s time to dig out my Shel Silverstein book out. And I did and I have this for all of you – enjoy!
If The World Was Crazy
If the world was crazy, you know what I’d eat?
A big slice of soup and a whole quart of meat,
A lemonade sandwich, and then I might try
Some roasted ice cream or a bicycle pie,
A nice notebook salad, an underwear roast,
An omelet of hats and some crisp cardboard toast,
A thick malted milk made from pencils and daisies,
And that’s what I’d eat if the world was crazy.
If the world was crazy, you know what I’d wear?
A chocolate suit and a tie of eclair,
Some marshmallow earmuffs, some licorice shoes,
And I’d read a paper of peppermint news.
I’d call the boys “Suzy” and I’d call the girls “Harry,”
I’d talk through my ears, and I always would carry
A paper umbrella for when it grew hazy
To keep in the rain, if the world was crazy.
If the world was crazy, you know what I’d do?
I’d walk on the ocean and swim in my shoe,
I’d fly through the ground and I’d skip through the air,
I’d run down the bathtub and bathe on the stair.
When I met somebody I’d say “G’bye, Joe,”
And when I was leaving–then I’d say “Hello.”
And the greatest of men would be silly and lazy
So I would be king…if the world was crazy.
Hope you all have some wonderful, silly adventures this weekend. I have a big stack of books I want to dive into, a date night at the bookstore and some crafty pursuits to attend to. More book talk soon.
