If I Were A Mouse! - Poem by Bob Gibson

If I were a mouse I'd live in a house, by the sea with a wood fire burning
I'd warm my tail, read yesterdays mail, and listen to the bread maker churning
I'd put on a hat, watch out for the cat, take a stroll by the side of the sea
the shells I would roll while taking my stroll I think i'll take home with me!

I would come out at night, give the ladies a fright, I'd stand on my hind legs and wave
then to appease, I would eat all their cheese, I think I would be terribly brave!
I'd sleep in till late, eat food off their plate, I'd do it, not making a noise
but with a sigh, I sit in my sty, I'm just a pig without any choice
