so fantasize.

down a country lane in a field of wheat,stood a man of straw,crying in his sleep,then he dreamed in his heart he was reborn,and had now become a vagabond--just a lonely soul on a country road,who was looking for a home to call his own--so he searthed all night,aided by the stars, he even asked a nightmare who had been put out to grass, and the nightmare knew the way but she recoiled in shock, for the poor man was naked,from head to foot---so he asked a young fairy,who was sitting in a tree,but she closed her eyes and started to scream, for no one had told her,a scarecrow could speak--so he shrugged his shoulders,and by early dawn, was standing all alone in a field of corn, and no one gave him a second glance, for all scarecrows look alike when theyre tied to a post--so if you see a bombay duck fly across the sky, would you just stand there and roll your eyes,or would you start to wonder why,you never see a scarecrow cry--if you see a cat run beneath your car, and you knew in your heart,that it should have died, would you make believe and fantasize, that you yourself had saved its life, or would a tiny doubt crawl across your mind, just how the hell did it survive--if you waved at a scarecrow as you drove down the road,then you looked in your mirror,and you saw him waving back,could you swear in your heart,and make believe, that you saw the wind,tugging at his sleeve--but if youre afraid to fantasize, let your imagination be your guide,dont let your heart it turn to stone, for if you do ,so will your soul--let your eyes reflect the joy within, for laughter is a precious thing, so make believe and fantasize, that you yourself is still ac child--
