'Imagination' by Bernard Shaw Tim Clothier

I used to play at Pirates, And sailed the seven seas
Then I was a cowboy, These simple things did me please
I had a vivid imagination, Adventure was always on my mind.
I discovered the joys of reading, And escaped the daily grind.
Once I lived with the Eskimos, In the land of ice and snow,
Went hunting and a fishing, My fantasy was all aglow.
I read a book of Jules Verne, And went off to the moon,
It was just to take a look, Then it was time to return.
I spent time in the forests of Africa, With Dr. Livingstone as my guide,
Then off again to America, With Huckleberry Finn I did hide.
In my world of fantasy and imagination, I performed such wonderful deeds.
A Hero of all the nations, I was the one that did succeed.
Then I grew up my childish world at an end. I had become serious it nearly drove me around the bend.
I still do like the mysterious, This is the message I am trying to send.
