You can’t play tag with a turtle,
and elephants don’t hide and seek.
You never go swimming with kitties
or tell a giraffe not to peek.
Now, guppies just aren’t built for football,
and hippos can’t balance a bike.
You’ll not see moose at the opera
or take a fat hen on a hike.
A buffalo’s no good at jump rope,
and turkeys don’t dance well at all.
A camel can’t play the piano;
a garter snake can’t catch a ball.
All creatures are skillful at something,
and that goes for boys and girls too.
What we can’t do is not that important.
What matters is what we can do!
