I Believe

Listen to Jonathan ...
I believe all sausages are laid by giant birds,
I believe each mountain goat knows how to say ten words,
I believe that yesterday was nothing but a dream,
I believe there lives an ‘I’ within the ‘T’ in Team,
I believe my feet smell great (and much better than yours),
I believe the dinosaurs knew how to open doors,
I believe bananas can be used to talk to trees,
I believe time does standstill, and jump about, and sneeze,
I believe potatoes come alive and dance at night,
I believe what I believe,
And I believe I’m right.

About the Writer

Jonathan Sellars

Jonathan lives in Greenwich, England. He is severely obsessed with writing poems, primarily ones that rhyme. His work has featured in The Caterpillar and Parakeet magazine and his first picture book, Polly Plum: Brave Adventurer, comes out in Spring 2022. He has two small children, neither of whom can read or write poetry. He's not worried about that. Yet.
