Joey

Joey Joey took a stone
And knocked
Down
The
Sun!
And whoosh!it swizzled
Down so hard,
And bloomp!it bounced
In his backyard,
And glunk!it landed
On his toe!
And the world was dark,
And the corn wouldn't grow,
And the wind wouldn't blow,
And the cock wouldn't crow,
And it always was Night,
Night,
Night.


All because
Of a stone
And Joe.

It doesn't talk about what happened to
Joey's toe.

He turned red
caught a breath
and tried to losen
his bo.
