I Like Stuff

I like so much stuff
it could be smooth or rough
it could be ticking or tocking
be still or rocking
a shoe or a stocking
anything gentle or tough

It could be a tree
a giraffe or a flea
a small piece of grass
or a great football pass
a wet soggy morass
it could even be me

It could be all wet
a loud turbo jet
an old faded picture
a brand new home fixture
a complex mixture
a person I've never met

It could be a ball
a big shopping mall
a dinosaur fossil
tiny or colossal
sipping hot homemade wassail
it could be nothing at all

It could be a string
or a gold wedding ring
a gray cowboy boot
or a business man's suit
this is all rather moot
because I like everything

Yes, Eli, you do love everything. And that is one of the reasons that we love YOU.

There once was a boy named Eliot
Who loved things he could see and could smell(iot)
He liked frogs and hogs and cool running togs
And yummy food he could put in his belly(iot).

Especially peanut butter and jelly(iot).

but if you like everything, then you like "just nonsense food," too. :)
