Wizards are smart fellows.
They wear big hats
And long robes to hide
Their pajamas.
They have long whiskers
Because they rather
Think glorious thoughts
Than shave.

They order pizza,
Look to the heavens
And chart the planets
While us foolish mortals
Fold our laundry
And clean our bedrooms.

Wizards smell a great deal.
Who has time for bathing
When the King needs you
To forecast weather
And plan battles
Based on the alignment
Of the planets and stars?
