A seagull on the moon is not lost,
She is a student of lunar soils.
A cookie in a salad is not lost,
It is experimenting with greens.
A muskrat in Macy’s is not lost,
She just needs a new cashmere scarf,
Because she ate the last one.
A cheerleader in the desert is not lost,
She is merely eager to express her enthusiasm
A monster in a preschool is not lost,
She is a gentle monster,
And the children love to hear her monster lullabies.
An astronaut in a church is not lost,
She is exploring.
A tiger in a Target is not lost,
And neither are you.
