Funny Foot

The shortest creature I ever knew

Was just a foot until he grew 

A narrow leg upon his shin

And I watched in wonder his growth begin

I wondered just how tall he’d be

As he sprouted hairs upon his knee

Onwards upwards grew his thigh

Reaching treelike in the sky.

My mouth fell open with surprise

I had never seen a leg this size!

Atop a peachy bottom grew

Not just one cheek 

Now there’s two!

From the crack there grew a nose

Longer than his fleshy toes

And on each cheek 

There grew two eyes

Bluer than the bluest skies

He gazed at me.

What could I say?

I simply watched him hop away.
