A poem

9:23 PM

Where can a man buy a cap for his knee
Or a key to the lock of his hair?
Can his eyes be called an academy
Because his pupils are there?
In the crown of his head, what jewels are found?
Who travels the bridge of his nose?
Can he use, when shingling the roof of his mouth,
the nails on the end of his toes?
Can the crook of his elbow be sent to jail?
If so, what did he do?
How does he sharpen his shoulder blade?
I'll be hanged if I know, do you?
Can he sit in the shade of the palm of his hand
or beat on the drum in his ear?
Does the calf of his leg eat the corn on his toes?
If so, why not grow corn on the ear?
