I wish I lived in a cave.
Or better yet, a tee-pee on the open plain.
The sun would help keep me warm
as I look for berries and arachnids.
If I lived in a tee-pee,
I’d have to crawl to get in and out.
Therefore, I would have stronger knees.
The open plains have wild beasts
like bison and wind and humans.
My tee-pee would shelter me.
I think the only mammals
that live in caves are bears.
But I can roar pretty well.
If I lived in a tee-pee or a cave,
I’d be safe and could concentrate
on more important things.
