Chelsea Marie - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Well it's Chelsea Marie
so how could it be
that I found not a word
like a featherless bird
I was searching my brain
but it all was in vain.

If you go to the zoo
I would wear the right shoe
on the left and the right
and I know you are bright.

So say Hi to the monkeys,
and the zebras and donkeys
and when home in your bed
think what Socrates said
to be you and be free
it's what you want to be.
