If I were a bee,
I'd sting Marilee
for that one time that she
made a fool out of me.

If I were a shark,
I'd eat that guy Mark
in the night, in the dark
'cause he made that remark.

If I were a piranha,
I'd take a bite of Lana,
though I really wouldn't wanna
(because she
looks like Madonna).

If I were a snake,
I'd slither around Jake,
His breath I'd slowly take
because Jake is such a fake.

If I were a rat,
I'd munch on Matt,
then I'd chew
his favorite hat
'cause he broke
my baseball bat.

If I were a skunk,
I'd make sure
Maria stunk,
in and endless
stench and funk
'cause she called
my poems junk.

If I were a lion,
I'd swallow up Brian
because Brian's
always lyin'
and I'd love
to see him cryin'.

But I am only me.
Not a lion or a bee.
So I'll set my anger free
before it swallows me.
