If I Were An Animal - Poem by Steven Robinson

Were I a Dove I would look down from above
Were I a Cat I would sleep on my mat
If I Were a Pig I would sleep and eat like one
If I Were a Dog I would leave a chocolate log
Were I a Pigeon I would poo on you
Were I a Donkey I would be a dumb ass
If I Were a Monkey I would scratch pick my behind
If I Were a Whale I would take on the open ocean to sail
Were I a Horse I would talk a little like one
Were I a Fish I would swim upstream
If i was a Bear I would cuddle my friends
If I was a Lion I would tame the keeper
Were I an Ant eater I would use my tongue like one
Were I a Porcupine I could tell who's a p..k
If I was Mouse I would scurry where I was not allowed
If I was a Bat, I would venture out into the unknown
Were I Dolphin I would laugh more
Were I a Zebra I would be confused
If I was a Puma I would run very fast
If I was an Elephant I would go on holiday
Were I a Wildebeest I would have my feast
Were I a Goat I would give you my coat
If I was a Beaver, well you what I'd do with that
If I was a Skunk, I would smoke myself
Were I a Hippopotamus I would join the ballet
Were I a Giraffe I would stick my neck out for others
If I was human I would live my life
If I was human I would end the strife
Were I a human I would befriend my neighbour
If I was me I would be just me
