List of endless impossibilities

Can you teach an old dog a new trick?
Or fish to fly and glide in the air
Or birds to swim and fall asleep
In the depth of cold waters
Or a pig to stop wallowing in the mud
Or a rooster to sleep
When the sun rises
Or a donkey to run likes a horse
Or expect ivory from a wild hog
Or women not to flirting around
Or men to stop thinking of
Sowing their seeds around
When the opportunity is right.
And I am no fool to believe
Any of that is possible
And the list is long
And I call it the
List of endless impossibilities.
