This is my Plea

My-Plea

I’ll grab a pirate by his hook
Or swim across the deep blue sea.
I’ll catch every single crook
Or swing like a monkey in a tree.

I’ll fly a rocket to the moon
Or sing in just my underwear.
I’ll build you a hot air balloon
Or put snakes in a witch’s hair.

I’ll do just about anything
Dangerous, yucky, or cool.
Please listen to my pleading.
Don’t make me go to school!
