When the World Turned Upside Down
by Marg Savage

The day when the world
Turned upside down:
when a frown become a smile
and a smile became a frown.

When the mice chased the cats
the cats chased the dogs.
The dogs laughed out loud
at the pink and yellow frogs.

When you went to bed in the daytime
and got up at night.
When birds caught the school bus
and the cows took flight.

When the moon came out
in the middle of the day
and all of the ocean’s fish
rolled around in the hay.

This all happened when the
World turned upside down
after I went to bed
with a smile – not a frown.
