[ Poet Tributes ] Just an elevator?

that only goes up and down?
* frown *    
Child, you're lacking imagination    
See you later, Alligator!    
As for you, Crocodile ...    
* smile *    
I wish you    
would stay a while---    
take a further tour with me    
Together, we can explore the four    
corners of my factory ( and there may    
even be a room or two or three    
I myself have never seen before! )    
We can zoom about in this fabulous    
glass observatory that zips and glides    
and dips, but never collides as it flip de trips    
and loop de loops---    
Oh! Look down there!    
Let's say goodbye      
* wave *    
to the Gloops!    
Hey, Little Bucket Boy!    
There's more to this silly story      
you have yet to read    
and I need---   
* cough *    
and I think    
you would be great at    
keeping me company    
* wink *    
Charlie, would you take a ride with me?
