An Ordinary Day

July
23

There’s a dolphin on my doorstep.
It’s an ordinary day.
He’s delivering the paper
in his ordinary way.

There’s a bison in my bathtub
singing ordinary songs,
and some hippos having ordinary
hippo sing-alongs.

In the pantry there’s a penguin
painting ordinary scenes
of opposums in their ordinary
orange submarines.

There’s an ordinary rhino
racing up and down the stairs,
chasing ordinary chimpanzees
and ordinary bears.

In the living room are llamas
dancing ordinary jigs,
like a dozen rather ordinary
llama whirigigs.

It’s an ordinary day for me;
I promise you it’s true.
And I hope your day is simply
extra ordinary too.
