Not For Me!

 

I’ve got a kind of problem,

I don’t know how to say

What it is that holds me back

From joining in the fray.

It seems that I’m a misfit,

That I don’t quite fit in,

I have odd tastes I know because

I’m a black and white penguin.

The others like the white stuff,

They love the snow and ice;

The coldness, it don’t bother them,

They think it’s rather nice.

But me I hate to feel so cold

That I think I’m going to freeze,

It always makes my eyes run

And makes me want to sneeze.

I should have been born as something else

And inhabit somewhere warm,

Not staring at the icy wastes

While waiting for a storm.

I can’t change just how I feel

No matter if it is not right

If I was a proper bird

I’d have taken flight;

But these wings aren’t made for flying

They are more to help me swim

And not to escape the icy wastes

That I am living in.

I’ll put up with the sniggers

As I try to warm my feet,

And I’ll let myself imagine that

I’m living in the heat!
