Maybe I'm Dreaming

By Bud Lemire

I was attacked by a dog that look like a cat
It meowed and it barked, can you imagine that
Then it chirped and it tweeted and it flew in a tree
It's the craziest thing that ever happened to me

I saw a squirrel of rainbow, not black or not gray
It was so beautiful, as it scurried away
A bushy tail with colors of the rainbow
It touched my heart, and warmed my soul

I saw a bird, that hopped like a bunny
I know to me, it sure looked pretty funny
It chirped and it tweeted, as it hopped around
As quick as a rabbit, so fast on the ground

Oh my, what is happening to me
To distort my vision, and all that I see
Am I really seeing, all that is there
Why are my eyes, open and aware

Maybe I'm dreaming, and really awake
As I look out, at a purple colored lake
I must be crazy, and going insane
Or something I ate, messed up my brain
Oh well, I'll enjoy the colors, no matter what I see
And accept them all, for coming to me
