The Churkendoose Song
Does the Pear Tree say to the Apple Tree:
“I hate you ’cause you’re not like me”?
Does the Green Grass ask the Sky so Blue”
“I’m green, why aren’t you green, too?”
A Rose smells sweet, ’cause it’s a flower.
An Onion tastes strong, a Pickle is sour.
They’re different, yet they get along
And no one seems to think it’s wrong.
Must I be a Chicken or Goose?
Can’t I be a Churkendoose?
