When I Was Born

I was born when lizards played
And children went to school

I was born when the cobra decided to dance naked
And the birds sang sonorously

I was born in the middle of the night
When the ants decided to topple the hills

I was born when the entire world
Was asleep, and when the spirit children roamed

I was born when no one was born
And the stars shone and the sky was clear.

So George, you were the noisy kid who's scream pierced my dream while I tried to sleep after a hard day's work?
