On A Chilly Day They Are Warm Inside



In a sleazy way they are judicious
On an easy day
they are ambitious

In a funny way they are joy erased
On a sunny day
they are cloudy faced

In a goofy way they are yet lucid
On a spooky day
they are understood

In a flaky way they are still able
On a shaky day
they are most stable

In a lazy way they are diligent
On a hazy day
they are clear accent

In a silly way they are open-eyed
On a chilly day
they are warm inside
