Mr Poppy's Head

Mr. Poppy gave balloons
To everyone he'd meet. 
Each made from severed parts
Like hands and ears and feet. 

He'd fill them up with helium, 

Though no one knew quite why. 
The people screamed and ran in fear, 
as limbs went floating by.

Then came the tragic day 

When Poppy's parts had fled. 
The last balloon he had to give
Was Mr. Poppy's head.
