What's a Desert?
A desert is a hot dry place.
The sun shines down all day.
Lots of prairie dogs and rattlers
like to live here anyway.
Thereís a tall and hairy cactus
that looks just like my dad,
especially if he wants a hug
from me and Mommy really bad.
Thereís big old rocks for climbing
but the sun shines way too much,
so the sweat just makes you soggy,
and the rocks too hot to touch.
I see roly poly bumble things
(they call them tumbleweeds),
and lots of sand, but nowhere grass,
and I miss climbing trees.
Here they call deer antelope.
(In the song, they like to play),
and itís fun to chase jackrabbits
to watch them hop away.
Iíve had a lot of fun here.
Thereís so much stuff to see.
But Iíll be glad to go back home
where it's Mom and Dad and me.
