The walrus, after brushing his teeth,
flopped into my bedroom.
He clapped his flippers and announced,
"Time to turn in!" I refused.
The walrus jumped on top of me. I escaped
and stood in the corner. "If you aren't
sleeping, let's take a drive," he said.
I suggested we go to the zoo.
The walrus declined, "I would be only
a creature among creatures."
We wound up at a diner.
He ate a BLT and I filled a napkin
with verse. He instructed,
"Pay particular attention to verbs."
