If - Poem by Hayley Lewis

...If the sky were a deep dark purple,
And lakes were fussia pink,
The daffodils a seedy red
And the grass in rainbow ink...

...If all the cars were yellow,
And the houses kinda gray,
The trees all painted navy
And the birds hunted lilac pray...

...If the telephones were TV's,
And the TV was a bed,
The radio became the sofa
And this cotton wool became my head...

...If the lampost started dancing,
And the mailbox grabbed a mic,
The lawnmower began fencing
And the car hopped on a bike...

Well, then we'd all have gone completly mad wouldn't we?
