Gene's poem

Before the end of the day,
be sure to smooden the clay.

Don't get uptight.
It will be alright.

Do not distress,
we'll cut a slip in the dress.

If the paint isn't right when you mix it,
Don't worry; we will fix it.

Your dolls' noses should have no drips,
But all their fingers need pips and dips.

And please remember before you're through,
Wombly legs just will not do.

Gene's limerick

You started with one lump of clay
And worked seven hours a day.
Your dolls are now dressed.
Each one is the best,
And you want Ankie & Marlaine to stay.
