If You Lie Down


If you
If you lie down
If you lie down on the ground,
If that's
If that's all that
If that's all that you can do,
Don't be
Don't be surprised
Don't be surpised if someone
Takes you for a carpet,
And walks all over you.


Takes you for the roadway,
And rides roughshod over you.


Takes you for a junkyard,
And throws garbage over you.


Takes you for a meadow,
And plants daisies over you.
