FICTION: If My Hair Were Like Spaghetti, Part Two Of Four

My friends would try to eat it.

Because it looks so good.
I would have to stuff my hair,
Up underneath my hood.

If my hair were like green grass,

This is what I'd do.

I'd make my sister mow it and

We'd give it water too.

I'd pull the weeds out once a week,

And give it minerals and such.

I'd read directions carefully,

And wouldn't use too much.

I'd let horses graze from it,

But not for very long.

A horse can eat a lot you know.

But eating too much would be wrong.

If my hair were like a mass of string,

This is what I'd do...

I'd let my kitty play in it

And my puppy too...

They would get all tangled up

And really have some fun...

My hair would get real messy

Before the two were done...
