The Duckbill Platypus studied
   The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
      And said:
         "I'll raise you four cards."

The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

Platypus offered Sleepy Hollow
   Not enough.
      Sleepy Hollow and an Armadillo.

Platypus and Sapsucker stopped
   For the Albatross
      Who said:
         "What is your question?"

   How much wood would a Wood Chuck chuck
      If a Wood Chuck could chuck wood?

The Albatross intoned seven kilos.
   The Duckbill Platypus:
      I win
