I Found a Quarter in My Pocket and It Changed My Life by Shari Seidman
Today I decided that I’m going to be the first mouse on the Moon.
I’ll cut my heart from those blue jeans and wear them to Mars.
I’ll fly to Jupiter faster than you can say banana split peanut butter cupcake
And then I’ll smash your ceramic figurines with my eagle-headed bow knife.
I am a warrior, I’ll tell them. And it’s my duty to untrain the monkeys
And fly into space.
