Dandelion, Dandelion, What Do You See?

*Please enjoy this adaptation of the classic children’s book called ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?’ by Bill Martin Jr & Eric Carle*

 

Dandelion, dandelion,

What do you see?

I see two disgruntled homeowners staring at me.

 

Homeowners, homeowners,

What do you see?

We see crabgrass and clover

Taking over the lawn, quite fiercely.

 

Crab grass, crab grass,

What do you see?

We see a crazy bitch spraying poison,

All over thee.

 

Crazy bitch, crazy bitch,

What do you see?

I see twenty carpenter bees drill holes,

In wood that once was a tree.

 

Carpenter bees, carpenter bees,

What do you see?

We see a floppy eared freak dog,

Cchasing down a rogue Frisbee.

 

Frisbee, Frisbee,

What do you see?

I see me hitting glass, shattering it swift,

Shattering it loudly.

 

Shattered glass, shattered glass,

What do you see?

I see brown ants on the carpet,

Taking cookie crumbs with glee.

 

Brown ants, brown ants,

What do you see?

We see Ginger screaming…

“KIDS FOR SALE, COME GET THEM, THEY’RE FREE”.

 

Screaming Ginger, screaming Ginger,

What do you see?

I see dirty dishes, not one weeks worth,

But more like three.

 

Dirty dishes, dirty dishes,

What do you see?

We see black flies swarming,

Looking hungry, looking munchy.

 

Black fly, black fly,

What do you see?

I see a fly swatter

Aiming right at me.

 

Fly swatter, fly swatter,

What do you see?

I see Mountain Man holding me,

Pissed off as he can be.

 

Mountain Man, Mountain Man,

What do you see?

I see a call for overtime coming in,

Perfect timing and very timely!

 

Overtime, overtime,

What do you see?

I see Uncle Sam and the Orthodontist,

Taking his money saying “YIPEE”!

 

Uncle Sam, Uncle Sam,

What do you see?

I see husband and wife live the American dream,

Really exhausted, and very crabby.

 

Husband and wife,

What do you see?

We see a full quiver that’s quirky,

A life blessed and equally crazy,

A desire to be lazy, well rested, our minds a lot less hazy.

Four kids carefree,  and a little bit clumsy-

Nervy and a hell of a lot mouthy,

One dog who’s a big drooly baby,

Chaotic chatter and constant frenzy-

Yet always filled with awe and whimsy,

Would we trade this in for better, for more snazzy?

Hell to the no, we’re not THAT snobby!
