Oh what a sibling is our Amos!
Never once did he ever shame us
By being a private dick, a shamus,
Or wandering blameless, nameless, aimless
Amidst the towering Himalayas!
He is no scampering ignoramus
Trying to serve a writ of mandamus
As notorious, enormous fusses
Settles o'er this precocious chorus,
Wide as Texas, flat as Kansas.
Nay! For sooth our sibling, good old Amos,
(Never showing any weakness)
Will be as famous as Nostradamus --
Probably before this coming Christmas!
