Crazy

by Miles Cates, age 8

Inspired by Shel Silverstein’s,  If The World Was Crazy

sent on June 4, 2020

If the world was crazy, you know what I’d eat?
An entire living squid pie,
A boat-load of tree soup or lawnmower ice cream chai.
I’d have squeaking mice and lice rye bread,
And lollipop jerky.
I’d eat the dirty rug, maybe,
If the world was crazy.
If the world was crazy, you know what I’d wear?
Buttermilk shoes and half eaten Milkyway underwear.
A soggy paper jacket covered in pollen,
Pants made of nerds, the candy
And socks of eyeballs from salmon.
A shirt from the hair of a bee,
That’s what I’d wear if the world was crazy.
If the world was crazy, you know what I’d do?
I’d swing on a needle that turns into goo.
I’d side down a person and beat up a whale.
I’d ride on a seal-boat and eat jello kale.
I’d leave home when it’s hazy and I’d chase a baby daisy named Maizy
And that’s what I’d do if the world was crazy
