Shorty has a pig's tail and a propellor hat.
He flies through the air like a dark gray bat.
He lives in Egyypt and is related to Big Foot.
He tripped on a root and got covered with soot.
He plays hockey and eats odd food.
Some people call him a nasty dude.
Here is a poem sent to The Poetry Lady by Marina:
Hey dittle dittle,
the cat in the middle
the cow jumped over the moon
the little dog laughed to see such fun,
and died the following june.
