I wish I were a Lizard too,
I would sneak through Bushes and Weeds,
And enter my enemy's house,
Travelling both horizontally and vertically
Through the crevices, corners and walls
I reach the room
Where my enemies are spilling
Venom against me
From their mouths;
They watch me,
They think that I am harmless
And I drink their venom
from my ears undisturbed.
I also wish I traveled to friends' house
They watch me,
They think that their best friend is creepy,
They shoo me away,
In excitement I make characteristic sound
And because I love my friends
I return home, transformed, as human

The poet wishes that he leads a dual life: that of the human as also that of a lizard. As lizard he wishes that he has the opportunity of hearing his enemies conspire against him. And also he wishes that he has the opportunity of playfully frightening his friends and, thereby, deriving excitement out of it.
