If fish could fly and birds could swim,
well then we'd have to think again,
and know that putting things in place,
all boxed up, no greater space,
is not the way that this world works,
and keeps us locked; no gifts unfurled.
But then again, who said they don't?
Who made the rules which say it's so?
For there are fish which surely fly
and there are birds which swim;
which just suggests that life is best,
when rules are not so prim.
It also says that just because,
someone has made a claim,
it doesn't mean there's any truth;
so question time again.
