Short Kids Poem: What do you want to be?

short kid's poem
My teacher asked her students
“What would you like to be?”
The answers we came up with
Were not a shock to me.

Sam wants to hide hyenas
In other people’s pants.
And Pat will teach a werewolf
The basic moves of dance.

John will study rowing
Just like his dear old dad.
They’ll cross a chocolate river
On dinghies painted plaid.

Blake will train ten tigers
To paint with just their tails
While Todd will stack six seagulls
On top of thirty quails.

Some of these jobs might shock you
Or frighten or appall,
But I think they are normal
Because I’ve done them all.
