Melvin: the fool in the pool

 

 

Melvin McWhirter

had a water gun —

a super-size squirter

if I ever saw one!

 

One day in the pool

Melvin went barmy —

just by playing the fool,

he made a tsunami.

 

He squeezed the trigger

faster and faster;

the cascade grew bigger

and then came — disaster!

 

A wave so immense

swept Melvin from sight,

right over the back fence

and we don’t know his plight.
