Sample Poem from A Little Bit of Nonsense, page 15.

Lazy Jane
Here's the tale of lazy Jane
Who lost the use of half her brain.
She could retrieve it, hasn't yet.
It's right beside her TV set.
She found her programs wild and thrilling.
All the while her brain was spilling
through her ear nd on the floor,
as she forgot what it is for.
And so it sits, a pile of gray.
It's useless to this very day.

About her programs, Jane does scoff,
"I've half a mind to turn them off."
