When something strange, happened I say.
That made him dance and skip along,
To the sound of the trees, whistling a song.
What a perfect day, what a perfect sight.
When all of a sudden, out of the blue.
Came something large, which grew and grew.
It couldn’t be, that’s completely insane.
Which came from behind, turning everything black
Even the sun, as a matter of fact.
It’s not that time”. He wondered to.
Then turning round, to his surprise,
He saw it big in front of his eyes.
Coming at him, ever so slow.
“Hello. Hello and what is your name”,
Said the hot air balloon, ever so game.
“I’m Hottie the Balloon, how do you do.
I take people way up in the sky,
So they can feel what its like to fly”.
“It is, it is, would you like to come”.
“Oh please. Oh please, if your sure”.
“Give me a second and I’ll give you a tour.
Over the trees like birds in the sky”.
Said Hottie the balloon with a smile on his face,
As they left the ground heading for space.
Over the tree tops and far away.
Feeling the wind touching their face,
Oh what a sight, as the birds gave chase.
“It couldn’t be, never no.
By Jove it is, its Master Baboon.
And he’s flying in Hotties’ balloon.
Said Master Crow doing a back flip.
As Master Baboon watched him fall,
“I’m loving it”. He began to call.
As life is magic up here to”.
Said Master Crow as he flew away,
“I hope you enjoy the rest of your day”.
Way up high in Hotties’ balloon.
“I hope I do now Master Crow,
Now have a safe journey and mind how you go”.
He couldn’t believe it as he asked himself why.
The people where ants and rivers where snakes,
Why was this as a matter of fact?
With a hardly sound, he asked himself why.
While Hottie he blew to rise even more,
To give Master Baboon a view of the shore.
Is that the ocean, or is that the sea”.
“Oh that’s the sea, my fury friend,
So shiny, so beautiful, right to its end”.
Those are boats my friend I swear”.
Pointed Hottie down to the sea,
“No way, no way, you’re kidding me”.
Said Hottie the balloon ever so flat.
As he dropped down out of the sky,
To show him the boats that passed them by.
Oh aren’t they beautiful and really clean”.
Said Master Baboon so simple and free,
As they flew over, the boats in the sea.
That looks like custard spread over the ground”.
“Oh that’s the beach made up of sand,
Which comes between water and land.
“Oh those are humans in shorts and pants”.
“What are they doing all lying around”?
“Getting a sun tan so their skin goes brown”.
They look like chocolate oh yes I swear.
Ever so dark and nearly black,
Are they misfits or a mistake”.
So don’t be racist oh by far”.
“Oh sorry mate I didn’t know”.
“Well now you do mind how you go”.
I’ll watch and learn and not pretend”.
“That’s good to hear now all the same,
But some of them liked to be game.
They’ll hunt and hunt, for you and Bear.
Along as there hungry and need food,
They’ll kill you all which is no good.
“Because humans are smart beyond you and me.
Even though we all bleed the same,
The humans believe that life is a game”.
No matter what we need to achieve.
In this life there always on top.
Polluting and Killing and probably won’t stop”.
But life goes on now in the end.
No matter what we all can do,
We have to help these humans to”.
We need to help them and have a good chat.
So we can keep breathing this lovely fresh air,
And keep our world green because we all care”.
For Hottie the Balloon I hope you know.
“So bye bye Hottie”. Said Master Baboon.
“I hope I’ll see you some time soon”.
Some time soon for another good thrill”.
“Well bye bye then till the next time”.
And Hottie shot of through the sunshine.
Went poor Hottie as he flew away.
Over the tree tops like a bird in the sky,
That’s it Hottie bye bye bye.
