If girlfriend were only one customs tall, you"d drive a worm to school.The teardrop the a crying ant would be her swimming pool.A crumb the cake would be a feastAnd last you 7 days at least,A flea would be a dreadful beastIf you were one customs tall.If you were just one customs tall, you"d walk beneath the door,And it would take about a month to acquire down to the store.A little bit of fluff would be her bed,You"d swing ~ above a spider"s thread,And wear a thimble on her headIf you to be one inch tall.You"d surf throughout the kitchen sink ~ above a stick of gum.You couldn"t hug her mama, you"d just have to hug she thumb.You"d run from people"s feet in fright,To move a pen would take all night,(This poem took fourteen years to write--"Cause I"m just one customs tall).
