ABSURDITIES Did you ever see a strawberry tree Or a chimney chase a rafter? Did you ever see a chocolate moose Or an audience crying with laughter? When have you seen a lobster grin Or an engine chase a caboose? Where would we be if the guilty were free With the innocent locked up instead? What about when bananas are round Or when stars could never twinkle? What if the rabbit was chasing the hound And the sun always produced a sprinkle? Should we go where angels fear to tread And where sure losers always win, Or maybe where the entrance goes out And to exit you’d have to go in? Would you rather swim on the beach And have the sand washed up on the sea? Now, don’t you know if stop meant go We would have one hell of a mess, And I’d rather not sleep under the bed, Or replace a whisper with a shout. If we climbed out of the grave when born, How would we handle the thing called death? What if horses could fly, and eagles swim? What if the cows were in the meadow And the sheep were in the corn? Have you ever heard of a cat that moos? And what if all cows said meow?

Additional Notes:
This was a blurb that just came out in continuum - in one of my spontaneity phases. Probably an "absurd" post, but I hope you enjoy it.
