It Takes all Kinds

It Takes all Kinds

If I’m askance, then you’re askew
I walk crooked, but you do too
Words you say won’t make me blue
Cuz’ I don’t have to be like you

If I like my purple hair,
Or pants inside my underwear,
Or pantaloons that twelve could share
Why should you care what clothes I wear?

If I want to eat some beets,
Or blue bananas and hamster feet,
Or gray tamales with lizard meat
Why would you rue the food I eat?

I don’t care if you eat squid
Or leave an open toilet lid
Don’t need a big list of forbid
To raise a happy, healthy kid

Glad your teeth are jeweled and pearled
And all your nose-hairs have been curled
This simple truth must be unfurled:
It takes all kinds to make a world

You Should

September 11, 2010

You Should

You should wake up early
You should never stop to play
You should not waste your time
You should work hard every day

You should save up every penny
You should put it all away
You should be very frugal
You should plan for rainy days

You should maximize potential
You should see what you can be
You should live to make more money
You should be just like me
