I started making creatures
All creatures great and small.
I ended up with extra parts
In a box in Heaven’s Hall.

I’ve got these left over parts
I can’t just throw away.
I’ll put them all together
Hmm, what will the angels say?

I’ve got parts of a duck
Some bills and webbed feet.
There’s tails from the beavers
Now it’s just about complete.

Use the body and fur
Left over from otters.
Yet instead of on land
I’ll put it in water.

The making of the thing
To do, no muss no fuss.
But just what do I call it?
How ‘bout a PLATYPUS.

Box of Parts

As seems to be usual, I have absolutely no idea where



came from. It just sort of spilled out of my brain. But I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

I will admit that I had to think a bit to figure out a rhyme for Platypus.
