I am going to build my own fort

I am going to build my own fort

Away from where the boys play

And welcome my girl friends to follow

Bring with you your gardening tools: spade, wire, stick

Welcome some lively beasts: a feeder for the hummingbirds should do the trick, seeds and nuts for squirrels and such

We have no space  for games of war: lets bead our friendship into bracelets we can wear to show our tribal bond

And if the soldiers, cowboys, native sons should come pounding and howling through: Let’s sing them off with a chorus of, “Daisy, Daisy, give me you answer true! I’m half crazy all for the love of you!”
