He was incredibly obese
He rolled round the world
crushing all boys and girls
then fell into a vat of grease

Except when he takes a dip
He looks like a fool
when he jumps in the pool
and reminds me of a sinking ship

A Dragon
By Parker Wiest
A dragon flies through the night sky
Not to be seen by a mortals eye
They fly so high not to be seen
Whoever can see one has eyes that are keen
People try to see them in the great night ..........

Mean as the snake called Boa
Loved him still
Wasn't God's will
Sent him back to Samoa.
