You Might Think

You might think how unfortunate
He looks like he must be a tramp
But have I told you about when
I rubbed Aladdin’s magic lamp?

You might think that of my senses
I have taken leave
But have I told you about when
I played with Alibaba and the forty thieves?

You might think I am slightly off
Or maybe not all there
But have I told you about when
I shimmied up Rapunzel’s hair?

You might think that I’m so lazy
It’s an effort for me to even stir
But have I told you about when
I kissed Snow White and awakened her?

You might think that for no apparent
Reason I am chipper
But have I told you about when
I carried Cinderella’s glass slipper?

You might think that I’m crazier
Than a room full of cuckoo-clocks
But have I told you about when
I ate warm porridge with Goldilocks?

You might think this fellow
Has gone completely off the rails
But have I told you that my life
Is better than a thousand fairy tales?

How do I tell you that my
Apparently idle ruminations
Transport me to a better world
The world of my imagination?
