I bought a brand-new teapot
And it has a whistling spout.
It informs me that it’s ready
As the steam comes pouring out.

When the whistle comes in handy
Is if I am out of sight
And forget the water’s boiling
Which, of course, you know I might.

It’s a nifty little feature
When a kettle can alert;
Thus, some danger in the kitchen
It can help me to avert.

Though the whistle is annoying
And it grates on all my nerves,
Still, I hope that its inventor
Gets the credit he deserves.

    yes, its whistle truly comes in handy, doesn't it? Can you imagine if you forgot you were boiling the water, you'd end up cooking the life out of that poor pot. once all the water had evaporated out. a cute poem. Thanks for what you said about pawnshop.

    A necessary modification to the teapot, I feel... as for nerves, you can quick kill the power! Best wishes, Keith
