Tell me Frankly

Tell me Franky
can you explain to me zany
Do you mean purple porcupines
please speak to me plainly
My thoughts are quite slippery
perhaps because it's rainy
My brain feels in pain
ideas making me crazy

Can you make sense out of silly
like mellow mooses eating cheezies
Why does that striped buffalo 
like yellow snow freezies
Does a crocodile loose his mind
or turn into a bag when he sneezes
Can any old salty dog
do exactly as he pleases

I'll ponder specifics 
Maybe things will become clear
If a kangaroo jumps through hoops
does that make him quite queer
Are birds of a pink feather 
more difficult to hear
Do green bears think more clearly
If you offer them root beer

In the end there's no answers
You've left me confused 
I've thought through my silly
all the zany I've used
Maybe you'll like it
The animals I've infused
Will mother nature accuse me
Or will she say I'm excused.

    Cute and comical, Richard. That's how many animals become when they end up in a zoo or a circus:) Regards // paul
