Excerpts

IF I WERE AN ANIMAL, WHICH ONE WOULD I BE? By Roy E. Peterson (April 4, 2012) If I were an animal, where would I be? Down on the ground or up in a tree? Perhaps in the sky flying in a vee? Or swimming around down under the sea? If I were an animal, how would I hide? Perhaps in a burrow where I could abide. A good camouflage I sure would have tried. Or hidden myself down under the tide. If I were an animal, what could I do So I could avoid the fate of a zoo? Run faster than wind, fly high in the air? Use razor sharp claws, or have teeth that can tear? If I were an animal, who would I be? A soft Teddy Bear, so soft and snuggly. With a mistress to carry me under her arm To hug me a lot and keep me from harm.
