Weekend Intermission: Why Penny Has Too Many Arms

No arms would be scary!
One arm is neat!
Two arms are normal!
Three arms, elite!

Four arms—that’s special!
Five, help get dates!
Six, help with harvests!
Seven—that’s great!

Eight arms—that’s ideal!
But nine’s a bit much!
Ten’s just past the limit!
And eleven would crush
The hearts of the
Arm-loving girls
Of Monnush.

So
Twelve isn’t dandy!
And
Thirteen’s not handy!
Though
The tasteful excess
Of fourteen’s sweet like candy.

And
Fifteen is rotten!
And
Sixteen’s too many!
So
Please do not have seventeen
Arms
Like our Penny.
