Still Me.

STILL ME

   Some days I'm just an elephant.
   I eat some leaves and watch the hunt.
   And sometimes I'm a rattlesnake.
   When I get mad, what noise I make!

   When I'm a lazy crocodile,
   I just stretch out and wait a while.
   But if I am a butterfly,
   I can't sit still, so I don't try.

   I am a cat from time to time
   And get stuck in trees I climb.
   And people run if they see me
   When I become a bumblebee.

   But mostly, I'm a kid like you,
   And all these different things I do
   Are make-believe, but lots of fun,
   Because I'm still me when I get done.
