CLAWMAN

He sat on the well

Picking his feet

Pulling on toe bugs

Juicy and brown, to eat

 

Faces passed by

On a school bus

Pallor turned green

At the man of disgust

 

Claw man waved

At the yellow bus driver

With his seagull feet

And tail all a quiver

 

With white feathers for arms

And a beak for a mouth

Claw man danced on his well

With his claws pointing south

 

He twirled through the air

Pirouetting in the sky

There on School Lane

Then started to fly

 

He was gone in a flash

But never forgotten

Claw man was someone

From a well with no bottom

 

So throw in your penny

In the wishing well

And maybe you will hear

Claw man ring his bell

 

Sat on his well

Picking at his feet

Gnawing at bogies

Just ripe to eat
