Lil’ Mateo

Lil’ Mateo
Was born a potato
During the year of the Great Flood.

Throughout his life,
Despite ridicule and strife,
Lil’ Mateo grew to be a successful spud.

He spoke Portuguese,
Won spelling bees
And was an excellent tuba player.

He tamed manatees,
Flew overseas
And eventually became a town’s mayor.

Though born a potato
This did not stop Mateo
From accomplishing his best life.

And from what I hear
There is reason to cheer
For Mateo is expecting a lil spud with his potato wife.
