innocent questions

My little sister was back home from school
Today she had questions deep as a tidal pool

Did I do something wrong? Why don’t I have a tail?
All the animals do. I’m sad, it leaves me pale

If trees live like we do, why don’t they walk?
Why did God punish trees? Why can’t they talk?

Why does an elephant have such a big nose?
Why can’t I follow a butterfly, fly as it goes?

Why is a notice called circular, if it’s rectangular in shape?
Why are old time queens famous for having grapes?

Why do giraffes have such a long neck?
Why do woodpeckers do nothing but peck?

Why do cuckoos lay eggs in a crow’s nest?
Hey please answer my questions, so I can ask you the rest.
