Puddle Town

How big does a puddle have to be

Before it's called a pool

A lake

A loch

Or even a sea


And what happens if a puddle grows

So that it reaches

Your knees

Your nipples

Or even your nose


Most of the time puddles aren't deep

They're small and they're shallow

Right in front

Of your wellies

Waiting for you to leap


But not this one on which I look down

I'm in it on a boat so that I won't drown

I can't see the bottom

Just a sign

And it says

"Welcome to Puddle Town".
