Annie Fisher : The thing about things

The thing about cats is they’re covered in fur,  
The thing about dogs is they pant but don’t purr,  
The thing about knights is you must call them sir,  
The thing about puddings is sticky to stir,  
The thing about pronouns is it, him or her,  
The thing about things is they ain’t what they were.  
 
The thing about saucers is they need a cup,  
The thing about cuteness is kitten and pup,  
The thing about supper is something to sup,  
The thing about little mistake is hiccup,  
The thing about yes it’s yeah, yep or yup,  
The thing about things is they sometimes look up.  
 
The thing about pipes is they go round the bend,  
The thing about Wendy is just call her Wend,  
The thing about broken is needing to mend,  
The thing about lonely is wanting a friend,  
The thing about letters and parcels is send,  
The thing about things is all good ones must come to an end.
