Park Geese


A quick stop at the park

Before we’re off to school

A milling gaggle of geese

Well, now, isn’t that cool?

Seemingly blissful

Without a care

They strut to and fro

Having much time to spare

So unlike us humans

With our mishugas and shtik

(But I’d rather be a person if I ever had to pick)
