1012 – Pick Your Fleas

Pick Your Fleas
You can pick your friends, and you can pick your fleas, but you can’t pick your friend’s fleas. Or can you?

Do Nothing

Some kids read books, while some build forts
and some play ball on Tennis courts
and some catch toads to count the warts.
It’s nothing that I want to do.

Some kids ride bikes and some climb trees,
and some spend lunchtime eating cheese
and some will sit and pick their fleas.
It’s nothing that I want to do.

Don’t want to nap, or take a trip,
or wash my hair, or chew my lip…
How I enjoy just doing zip.
It’s NOTHING that I want to do.
