There once was a fool who just stood
Ne'er a care that he could.
Forever he thought,
Of the problems he sought,
With his penguin friend in the wood.

He played many games of the mind,
Putting his heart in a bind.
But the penguin you see,
Was filled with glee,
Because he was all he could find.

They followed each other on a path
Not even taking a bath.
The penguin did squeak
As the fool gave a shriek
When they were dragged to face the Queen's wrath.

The fool cried on his bed,
For his penguin was sent to a shed.
He didn't even think,
That he could survive another blink,
For the Queen said, "Off with your Head."
