I could be a child's rhyme, but then again(?). --- One fantasy question in rhyme. --- No, it was not intended to mimic Dr. Seuss, but some might think that it went that way.

If strange was normal

And normal was not

Would sameness be different

Than the sameness we sought?

And if we were lighthearted

Would we suddenly be dark?

All draped in black clothing,

And ever so stark.


If the moon was the sun

And the sun was the moon

Would we be up at midnight

And be sleeping at noon?

And if water was earth

And earth was water

What in the world

Would become of the otter?


And how about those creatures

All those things in the sea,

Where would they live?

Not with you or me!

And what about bushes, the plants,

The grasses and such?

I am afraid what survived

Wouldn't be much.


So let's not go there

Let's stay where we are

Let the truck remain a truck

And the car, a car.

Let the light remain light

And keep the dark in the dark,

Keep the street just a street

And never a park.


The way things are

Seems to work for the best

So I doubt if we should

Put stuff to the test.

So I withdraw the question

Of normal and strange

And I'll just hop on my Lama

For a ride on the range.
