Keeping Your Head Above Water

I bought a fish named Clem on Tuesday

And by Wednesday he was dead.

I bought a fish named Joe on Thursday

But hid him under my bed.

Joe is living happily

Unlike poor, stubborn Clem

Who saw guys on TV and challenged himself

To hold his breath like them.

Denying The Obvious

I was missings my book.

I thought it had been took,

But I found it in time,

In a bowl with a lime.

Then along went my head,

Where my little voice said

“You’ll find your book

In the last place you look.”

But that was such a bore,

So I looked ’round some more.

I looked in the den.

There my book was again!

I looked under my sofa,

And my book had moved ofa’.

But I’m not satisfied

‘Til my head knows it lied.

I’ll prove my head wrong,

No matter how long

It takes.
