See Shel.

Jennaswan picked 'A Light in the Attic' and Carly picked page 66. A team effort brought us to:

Wild Strawberries
-by Shel Silverstein
Are Wild Strawberries really wild?
Will they scratch and 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 quests?
Will a litterbox work or would they leave 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 Strawberry cannot be tamed.

Turns out there was a band once named Wild Strawberriez. Sweet.
