The Flea
Come out, come out from underneath there flea!
Why must you suck out the blood of the living and strong?
Why can’t you be like a bee and drink the nectar of the flowers?
Why can’t you be like a caterpillar and eat munchy, sweet leaves?
Come out flea come out!
Your bite makes me itchy! Oh please get off!
Go bother someone else. Leave me alone!
For something so small why can’t you be like a worm and eat the nutritious soil?
Or a ladybug and eat smaller bugs?
Leave now flea! Go away!
I finally see you, it’s time to go.
I try picking you up with a napkin, buy you jump so high and fast.
I finally catch you.
I take a quick glance at you, so you don’t run-off.
Why couldn’t you be some other bug than a flea?
Good-bye flea!

My dog had fleas, so I just asked "What would it be like to have a flea?"

It's okay, but there are a lot of constructional errors.
