When I grow up, what would I like to do?
A tinker, a tailor or I’d work in a zoo?
Um! What would I really like to be?
I might write a book or maybe three
And that would be called a trilogy!
I’d spend my time thinking away
And researching hard most of the day.
I’d get someone to edit and put me straight
The editing would be something I’d hate.
I’d get it published and sell a few,
I’d have a book signing and have a big do!
Yes, a writer is what I’d like to be.
When – I grow up!
