Below is a sample of this book:
Quick Sam

Quick Sam rode a rocket

Across the western sky

It blasted off and disappeared

Oh how fast he did fly

He made good time on the rocket

And friend it ain’t no lie

He reached his destination

Before he said goodbye

The Long And Short Of It

Old Mr. Short and young Miss Tall

Met in the summer and married in the fall

It’s hard to tell what their kids will be

I’m guessing middle-aged and five foot three

The Donut Hole

I’ve got a big glazed donut

But where is the hole?

It was there in the center

Just a second ago

I asked the donut maker

But he didn’t know

He said I think I saw it

When I rolled out the dough

I’ve looked the kitchen over

Searched high and low

All that I’ve found

Is a big empty hole

Wait, I think I have it

Yes, it must be so

But, when the middle is missing

Is the donut whole?
