Peter the orange parrothad a very tiny beak,unlike the other parrotshe was never heard to speak.But they were never nasty to him,Peter the non-talking parrot
had a ship on the sea
had a fish for his tea
had a peg for a knee
and a tiny parrot called...Polly
The night was as dark as an ink well,For the moon had gone visiting elsewhere,But by the scuffling sounds around me,I knew there was someone there.
In need of some repair,
six point seven billion
Lovely views of the galaxy,
possible renovation project.
Owners seek exchange
never hitting pause
on your favorite ninety-minute movie
but futsal is like
Please Mrs ButlerThis boy Derek DrewKeeps copying my work, Miss.What shall I do?
Don't be so glum,plum.

And says it is just the essentials.
