Strawberry Fields....

"Are wild strawberries really wild?

Will they scratch an adult, will they snap at a child?

Should you pet them, or let them run free where they roam?

Could they ever relax in a steam-heated home?

Can they be trained to not growl at the guests?

Will a litterbox work or would they make a mess?

Can we make them a Cowberry, herding the cows,

or maybe a Muleberry pulling the plows,

or maybe a Huntberry chasing the grouse,

or maybe a Watchberry guarding the house,

and though they may curl up at your feet oh so sweetly

can you ever feel that you trust them completely?

Or should we make a pet out of something less scary,

like the Domestic Prune or the Imported Cherry,

Anyhow, you've been warned and I will not be blamed

if your Wild Strawberries cannot be tamed."

— Shel Silverstein (Where the Sidewalk Ends)
