Crazy Day - Gustav Krklec

Rooster this morning said to me:
Dear friend, good evening!
ls this a dream or reality?
A cat sleeping with mice.
A toothless goat smoking a pipe,
a grey mule playing the flute,
a goose pulling a fox by the tail,
a carp flying over the house...
A strange monkey with a full sack
wishes me — a crazy day!

Gustav Krklec (1899 - 1977) Croatia
