The Man of Tricks
Michelle, Age 10, Ottawa, ON
                      The man of tricks asked me,
“Why do birds fly in the air,
and why do fish swim in the water?”
I answered,
“Oh, could they be different?”

The man of tricks asked me,
“Why do apples grow in the trees?”
I answered,
“Oh, could they grow on the ground,
as large as a watermelon?”

The man of tricks asked me,
“How many drops of water are in the ocean?”
I answered,
“Thirty-five trillion, six hundred, and twenty-one.”

The man of tricks asked me,
“Is there not one more?”
I smiled and said,
“You go and make sure.”
