What If A Zebra Had Spots?

by Barry Louis Polisar

What if a zebra had spots?
Do you think he would like that a lot?
And what if a tiger had dots?
What if a leopard did not?
What if we could sleep like a bat?
And dine like an overweight cat?
Instead of going to school, we'd hang around and get fat;
I know of some people like that.

What if we talked with our nose?
And what if the sun just froze?
Exactly what do you suppose,
We'd be if we didn't wear clothes?
What if a hippo could fly?
Or flutter like a big butterfly?
Do you think any hippo would try?
If so, what would fall from the sky?
