Stanley Stanza

Stanley Stanza owns some scissors.

They are special scissors –

with these scissors Stanley snips

poems into little bits.  

 

There! See! He just did it!

He did it just then because

to Stanley Stanza it seemed

the right thing to do.

 

Look! He did it again!

Sometimes he gets it right,

like he did just now.

Sometimes, however, he

 

seems to get it wrong.

Just like then.

And sometimes Stanley Stanza

simply can’t

 

        be trus

 

        ted.
