Ruben's Sandwich

Hey diddle diddle
We poets will fiddle
With poems that jump over the moon.
But sometimes we blunder
He still claps like thunder
And soon we are smiling a tune.

While he sits on his tuffet
and gobbles his sandwich
He brings a smile with each comment he makes
Collecting his wits,
With humorous bits
Jay Leno would gladly be paid!

To have him crack jokes
He cheers all the folks
Who stay up by light of the moon

Even little dogs laugh, 
While the rest of us grin
You're a great guy, we love you! ... Ruben!!
