"I will pick up the hook.
You will see something new.
Two things. And I call them
Thing One and Thing Two.
These Things will not bite you.
They want to have fun."
Then, out of the box
Came Thing Two and Thing One!
And they ran to us fast.
They said. "How do you do?
Would you like to shake hands
With Thing One and Thing Two?"
Then the feathers popped out! With a zang! With a zing!
They blossomed like flowers that bloom in the spring.
All fit for a queen! What a sight to behold!
They sparkled like diamonds and gumdrops and gold!
The she spread out her wings to take off from the ground,
But, with all of those feathers, she weighed ninety pounds!
She yanked and she pulled and she let out a squawk,
But that bird couldnt fly! Couldnt run! Couldnt walk!
