We of few//Kathryn Paulsen

I am    I

am not    I

can   I can not

I has two

one dog and

one cat    I

has two, too

one bat and one

bit of cow to hit

I do    I do not

see you now

I did the day

you had me

say    I do

not say it now

I can not say

any, any day

You do not

get me now

so how did you
