on a wooden pirate ship
and made Santa walk the plank.
I climbed the highest mountainsand all the tallest buildings
to toss money from all the banks.
I danced on a white beach,where I skipped an irate crab across the tide—
and I did all these things when I was still just a child.
I paraded through gardenswith the flowers in my mouth,
then ran from all those angry bees
about a hundred miles south.
I slid down rainbowsand landed in pots of gold!
Which got the leprechaun fired,
or so I was told.
I put out forest firesto save critters from igniting,
and held a meeting with the earth's leaders
to stop all the fighting:
I explored the whole worldand even flew through space—
because in my big badass world I did it all!
