The Hoptimus Skridwarp of Jellico Blaw,
Had a bultimous blister upon his left paw,
When he tried to burst it with a needle and spoon,
It started to play a ridiculous tune.
The Hoptimus Skridwarp he showed some surprise,
When the bultimous blister before his bald eyes,
Invited the Skridwarp to come to a dance,
“Thank you” said the Skridwarp, “I will take a chance.”
Then Hoptimus Skridwarp enquired of the Blister,
If he could bring also his Hoptimus sister.
“Yes bring her” said Blister, “That won’t be abnormal,
Though please do remind her that dress will be formal.”
So our friends arrived in their dancing regalia,
But sadly the night was a horrendous failure,
For no one you see would dance with a blister,
And Miss Skridwarp walked out when a young turtle kissed her.
