One-Kid Zoo

There’s a monkey in my mouth
And a crab up in my brain.
The monkey’s always mouthing off
And the crab makes me seem insane.

My finger worms are wigging out.
The belly geese are in an uproar.
All my gut lizards are oddly calm
And wondering what’s the fuss for.

The toad stowed in my nose
Got a whiff of my firefly eyes.
Now he sounds his hungry croak
So they’ll look alive, those firefleyes.

The bear cub in my chest awoke,
I can hear her growl.
My many critters creep about,
My pals are on the prowl.

I’m not me.
I’m a one-kid zoo.
Look at you!
You’re a mess!
You must be one too.
