I have a gas balloon,
That drinks from a giant spoon,
And flies away when someone’s watching it –
Would you fly in it?
I have a car,
That goes round, and round in a jar,
Inside it is hot, and dark –
Would you sit inside and drive it?
I have a hen,
A hen that never lays eggs,
But cackles raucously all night and keeps everyone awake –
On a plate, would you like it?
I have a lamb,
Who looks at the moon,
And then at you in utter gloom, in winters and monsoon,
In a full-moon night, on the way home, would you guide it?
