I found it difficult to be inspired by the "happy" topics of small music boxes, brass-decorated cash registers, or teakettles. I was thinking that I'm much more interested in people than in such objects. And then it suddenly came to me -- EUREKA! and here they are.
Stephanie is short, wired, and complicated.
She is always humming, quite out of tune,
As she dashes in all directions at once.
She reminds me of A SMALL MUSIC BOX
THAT PLAYS "THE BLUE DANUBE" AND A TUNE FROM "LA TRAVIATA'
-- But at the same time.
Herbert always acts pushy and obnoxious,
Perhaps to keep people away from his secrets.
But if you really get to know him,
You find he's full of useful and valuable things.
He's like a BRASS-DECORATED CASH REGISTER.
Melissa is usualy so very quiet
You forget she's anywhere about;
But when she heats up and starts spouting
There's no ignoring her. She almost shrieks out,
"I am TEAKETTLE. Hear me whistle!"
