Hero


The grass needs mowing,
the weeds need cutting,
the fence needs fixing;
the place needs painting,
build a tree house for me please, please, please.
Take me to the PARK,
push me on the SWING,
Let’s go on the big truck tonight.
Take me, take me,
dinosaurs I want to see,
T-Rex and Long Neck,
will be there soon.
Mustard bottle cleaned out and filled with chocolate syrup,
Cut a triangle into a milk carton and shake.
APPLES,
ORANGES,
PEACHES,
PEARS,
all we need is your pocket knife,
will you cut me a slice.
Work all your life,
never complain,
just hold out your big hand and let’s play a card game.
They say a hero is someone who runs towards danger,
but they never meet you,
Big as a bear,
stronger than superman,
Papa I miss you.
