The Tale of Noggin' Bop

Once upon a time there was a robot named Noggin' Bop

All he wanted to do was dance

But in order to be able to, he first needed to be cranked

But being a lonesome blue robot boy

No one would turn his dial to give him energy

So there he sat on the desk

Surrounded by papers, a camera, a pig, and stickers

With his last dance move still posed

Longing for more movement

One day, a girl was sad and needed cheering up

She discovered Noggin' Bop's blue plastic self, posed and smiling

She picked him up, turned his dial a few times,

Placed him on the table top and Noggin' Bop's dance moves were released

From side to side his little mechanical hips and arms swayed

His head bopped to invisible music

As the gears clicked and spun over and over

A smile grew on the girl's face

As she watched the little robot boy dance

Alas, his gears clicked off and once again Noggin' Bop was still

The girl's smile faded slowly

To fight the sadness she picked him up again,

Turned his dial, placed him down and watched his moves

Her smile soon returned as the robot boy performed

Their smiles matched as the invisible music played on

Every time his gears slowed and stopped,

The girl would pick him up and start him again

From then on, Noggin' Bop and the girl were as happy as could be

The End.
