Poem by Gelett Burgess

* * *

I'd Rather Have Habits Than Clothes,
For that's where my intellect shows.
    And as for my hair,
    Do you think I should care
To comb it at night with my toes?

I'd rather have ears than a nose,
I'd rather have fingers than toes,
    But as for my hair:
    I'm glad it's all there;
I'll be awfully sad when it goes.

I wish that my Room had a Floor;
I don't so much care for a Door,
    But this walking around
    Without touching the ground
Is getting to be quite a bore!
