some

Whatifs

crawled inside my ear

and pranced and partied all night long

and

sang their same old

Whatif

song:

Whatif

I'm dumb in school?

Whatif

they've closed the swimming pool?

Whatif

I get beat up?

Whatif

there's poison in my cup?

Whatif

I start to cry?

Whatif

I get sick and die?

Whatif

I flunk that test?

Whatif

green hair grows on

my chest

?

Whatif

nobody likes me?

Whatif

a bolt of lightning strikes me?

Whatif

I don't grow

talle

?

Whatif

my head starts getting smaller?

Whatif

the fish won't bite?

Whatif

the wind tears up my kite?

Whatif

they start a war?

Whatif

my parents get divorced?

Whatif

the bus is late?

Whatif

my teeth don't grow in straight?

I tear my pants?

I never learn to dance?

Everything seems well, and then

the nighttime

Whatifs

strike again!
