A Strange Day (story-poem with a nifty illustration!)

This made me laugh. 

A Strange Day

I stumbled on something yesterday.
It was alive and made a sound,
kind of a mewling, choking noise.
I was afraid I had killed it, so I began
crying, but the thing I stepped on
rolled into the grass and sat up.

“That was a horrible experience,” it said.

“It wasn’t all that great for me,” I replied.

The creature looked kind of like this:

“You look kind of like a two dimensional onion,” I said.

The creature frowned at me. “I hate onions,” it said,
“and I don’t look anything like that. For thing, I have hair.”
“How many onions have you ever seen with hair?”

“I can’t think of ever seeing an onion with hair,” I said.

“That’s what I thought,” the creature said. “Now, leave me alone.”

The creature rolled off through the grass and I never saw it again.

It was a strange day, but I’ve had stranger.
