* "The Porky" (a poem about a porcupine):
-->''Oh who will wash the porky's ears,\\
And who will comb his tail,\\
And who will shine his long sharp quills\\
And manicure his nails?\\
Oh Willie may wash the porky's ears,\\
And Carole may comb his tail,\\
And Sidney may shine his long sharp quills,\\
And I'll go down for the mail....''
* "Sick" is about a girl who says she can't go to school because she's sick, then goes on to describe a long list of things wrong with her. Ending with:
-->''I have a hangnail, and my heart is--what?\\
What's that? What's that you say?\\
You say today is... Saturday?\\
G'bye, I'm going out to play!''
* "Helping" describes some people helping others, and some people "helping" others.
-->''And some kind of help is the kind of help\\
That helping's all about.\\
And some kind of help is the kind of help\\
We all could do without.''
