One fine day
In a little town
Called Paisly,
East Kilbride

A little man
And his little cat
Came a walking down
The road.

I stopped to watch
Amazed at sorts
To see before my eyes
For the little man,
And his little cat seemed only 2 feet high.

How darling he was
With his little rosy cheeks,
And his tiny hat
And tiny Feets.

I walked over to the tiny man
And asked him "what be your name?"
"Peter", he said
"Peter Vane", and that was all that came.

"Delightful", I said
But may I ask one thing
How did you come to be so small?

"I'm small?" he said.
He turned and handed me a fig.
"You must be mistaken" the little man said.
"I'm not small you're big".

Great poem. I like the point you drove home with the final line. We all need to take a gut check and see if our point of view can really correlate with others. (I hope you understand what I am trying to say here) I like this one a lot.
