Rhinos, and Penguins, and a World Smaller

I want the world smaller
Rhinos and penguins playing together
Africa and America embracing each other

Cross the ocean in two steps to meet for coffee
You in Denmark and me in Mexico

I want the world smaller
so you and I can hug every morning

You laughed. “Tomorrow, perhaps”.
So make it dawn tonight
Right now

Rhinos and penguins and continents and lovers
Playing together in two steps
A world smaller
Tomorrow, perhaps


I would love to create a song with this.
