Strange Professor Frimpinsock invents some odd creations,
No matter how much he's prepared there's always complications.
His Integrated Doodad just exploded on the floor,
And his Automatic Whachacallit smashed through his front door!
His Neo-Fibric Widget, well that didn't even start,
And his Wonder Dingbat Grabber quickly stopped and fell apart!
His Super-Tensile Jigger scared away his faithful dog,
And his Futuristic Dingus filled the neighborhood with fog!
His Frimintensil Hoo-hah burnt a whole straight through his chair,
And his Special Reading Gadget went berserk and singed his hair!
Now poor Professor Frimpinsock's at present out of action,
As his last invention ran amok and landed him in traction!
