Three Feet

“You’re kind of small,”
The genie said,
Stroking his beard
Shaking his head.

The small boy said
“I’m not so small
It’s just that I
Am not real tall.”

“I know that I
Stand just three feet
And one more foot
Would be real neat.”

“Another foot
And I’d be tall,
No one would say,
‘My but you’re small!'”

Hocus pocus.
He twixed his nose
And then I got
Five extra toes.

“Mr. Genie,
Though you are kind,
This isn’t what
I had in mind.”

“Although I guess
It’s kind of neat,
The only kid
That has three feet!”
