Possessions of mine

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?
