If I Had The Thing - Poem by Lea Simpson

If I had the thing
I wouldn’t be at work
I’d be at work on its lips

I’d give it wings
Hold it above my head and fly with it
Paint it red, put out fires with it
I’d draw a long bubble bath just to watch it climb in

If I had the thing
I’d give it a spine to send shivers down
