 Handy Rhyming   Pronunciation Guide:

I think I smell something pooey,

Has anybody seen Louis?

It’s a 'stagnant Nile delta’ smell,

Definitely a Decrevel.

That magic spell went screwy!

Bumbling wizard Louis.

He sure knows how to wreck a spell,




He needs (around his neck) a bell,

Absent-minded Decrevel!

Say hello!

“What I say is that, if a fellow really likes potatoes,

he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow.”
