The Man Who Lived in His Head
There once was a man,
Who lived in his head
With worry and fear and
All sorts of dread.
Tourists would visit
From around the world
To sneak a peak inside the head,
That he had placed upon a pedestal.
They would climb upon scaffolding,
That allowed them to view
What went on between ear one and ear two,
And suggest some things that he could do.
The rooster suggested a cock-a-doodle-do,
That he should do til he turned blue.
Felines suggested a hearty meow,
And this he managed to do somehow.
Yet inside his head he remained
Until one day a girl exclaimed,
“Get out of your head
And live out here instead,”
And that is what he eventually did.
