When I was a child

When I was a child,

I used to call a spade a spade

The big elephant used to dance

In the TV at the day

At night, I used to dream the same

Riding the big fat elephant,

I used to go for the jungle safari

Meeting Monkeys in my bed

I used to run after the cabbage butterfly

Believing that it fulfills wishes from the sky

But now things have changed

I don’t know why, but I feel strange

I might have lied

But no, that butterfly had died

If I see the tiger and hear it roaring

I must say it is a dog

For my wife would never believe me then after

For my children would get scared so far

For my parents never believe in my star

When I was a child,

I was not the man who thinks

There is a worse past waiting for unprecedented future.
