Jock The Poet Octopus

 

I'm Jock, the poet octopus:

I live beside the loch.

It's tick past tock - ticktocktopuss,

It says so on my clock.

-

I'm off to see the Doctorpuss,

to cure my writer's block.

My mind's gone cuckoo clocktopuss:

the words are out of stock.

-

I've got a mental blocktopuss:

I'm writing poppycock.

The black sheep of the flocktopuss,

I'll be the laughing stock.

-

"So Doctor, oh dear Doctorpuss,

I'm snapping like a croc.

A walking joke - knock knocktopuss,

please cure me Doctor Doc."

-

"The problem's clear, dear octopus,"

the Doctor said to me,

"there's too much time spent forcing rhyme,

it's clear for all to see!"
