Saw a Bee Sleepin in Bed Stuy By Watt Burns

Saw a Bee Sleepin in Bed Stuy
Saw a bee sleepin in Bed Stuy.
Saw a gnome far away from it's home.
Saw a cheetah drive a jeep in Cincinatti,
stopped in Cleveland for a philly and a brew.
Saw a possum ponder life in an alley.
Saw a pigeon fake a waddle for some stew.
Saw a fish blow a kiss to seaweed.
Saw a cat meow and holler at the moon.
Saw a dude get rude in Detroit;
shot a whiskey, shot a rival, 
now he's dead.
Saw a dog skip stones in Santiago.
Saw a turkey’s birthday bash in Baltimore.
Saw a goose cut loose in Chicago -
cut a rug, smoked a blunt, fucked a swan.
Saw a lizard surf rain in San Diego.
Saw a camel chomp carrots like glue.
Saw a llama lick a light in Laos.
Saw a rooster fight cocks in a coup.
Saw deer argue over directions.
Saw a beetle dodge a rolling stone.
Saw a monkey meander through Madrid.
Saw clowns pout in Manhattan.
Saw an ice cream man in Milwaukee
staring at his cone reflection.
Saw a light from the creatures in the shadows,
cast down upon us like a moon.
