once I saw I thing

sitting next to a tree.

At the park,

The park by the sea

 

This thing I saw

looked quite different from the rest

funny shape, huge eyes,

strangely dressed.

 

The strange looking thing

walked over to wear I sat

we smiled at each other

although we didn’t chat

 

then we started to play in the playground

the thing was funny and nice

we went down the slide

and played hop scotch, twice

 

now the only life in the playground

was the thing and I

then I saw the people staring at the thing

and the children starting to point then cry

 

mum rushed to come take me away

I yelled. No this is my friend

Mum yelled. No this is a stray
