If I was a Koala….

Posted on July 3rd, 2012 in Stories


If I was a koala,

I’d dwell in a tree,

Snacking on eucalyptus leaves,

As many as I could eat.



If I was a koala,

I’d prance about,

showing off my pouchy–sorry–pouchy tummy,

With a little head poking out.

If I was a koala,

I’d twirl from limb to limb,

Dancing from tree to tree,

Until I dropped from sheer exhaustion,

Into a sunkissed canopy.


If I was a koala,

Earrings would dangle from my fuzzy ears,

As I sashay about forrest in my stylish grey fur,

Those Aboriginals ain’t got nothing on me.


If I was a koala,

I’d snooze most of the day,

waking only for tasty leaves,

plucked straight from the nearest tree.


But if I can’t be a koala,

I’d like to at least have one or two,

Hug them and squeeze them like teddy bears,

As they clung to my arms like trees,

For wouldn’t you like a koala,

To snuggle until it wheezed?



If I was a koala,

I’d coo in delight,

For if I was a koala,

I’d be sleeping in a treehouse tonight.


Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  We have a new Wing mañana!

    Such a cute poem. I think they are pretty cute too. I couldn’t do it all the time, but they are pretty lazy which does sound good.

  13. Cakelaw Says:

    LOL – you would be the most active koala on the planet, as they are slothful little souls. Very cute, and love the photos.

  14. Marjie Says:

    Koalas are adorable, but they’re supposed to be really foul tempered. Keep Queen Bitty and Sir Bear instead.
