Animal

On Mondays I wake up
And I am a butterfly
My thoughts flit all over
But I am happy, I don’t know why

On Tuesdays I wake up
And I am a sly fox
All my slinky moves
Are calculated to flummox

On Wednesdays I wake up
And I am a blue sperm whale
I can make a big whoosh
All I have to do is exhale

On Thursdays I wake up
And I am a tiger, I roar
All day I prowl, hungry
More, I yell, I want more!

On Fridays I wake up
And I am a big swordfish
You’ll never catch me, old man
However much you wish

On Saturdays I wake up
And I am a lithe mongoose
If you happen to be a snake
You’d better not be on the loose

On Sundays I wake up
And I am an armadillo
I just curl up in a ball
Under my warm pillow

No matter how I wake up
My wife’s got my number
She says I’m her baa-lamb
And I smile in my slumber
