Unicorn

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
She’ll poke holes in your walls
And knock everything about until it falls

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
She won’t always let you ride her
And that’s OK if it’s what you prefer

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
She’ll be temperamental and flighty
And steal your nightie

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
She’ll keep you up all night talking
Leaving you exhausted and dead woman walking

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
She’ll be opinionated about everything
And say some things that will likely sting

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
She may seem all demure
But she’s really a bawdy raconteur

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
She’ll be extraordinarily particular
Always leaving you perpendicular

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
You may think you’re all simpatico
But you really need to let her go

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
She’ll just break your heart
And you’ll have to get a fresh start

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
It may seem like a delicious idyll
But she’s really wearing an invisible bridle

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
She may be married
That’s something to think about as you’re ferried!

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
She already has her life
No need to cause any strife

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
Have your fun and go
While remembering the quid pro quo

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
You have to let her come to you
And if she does that’d be quite a coup

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
But don’t wait and pine
Or sit around and whine

If you find a unicorn
Do not take her home
Just crook an eyebrow now and again
That can be seen all the way to Maine
And laugh at the world
That left you totally whirled
