Dr. Invention invented a light
that helps people see in the dark.
He also invented a merry-go-round
that spins round and round in the park.
He found a new way to catch fish in the bay
by tying a hook to a string.
He thought it was nice when he built a device
that lets you record when you sing.
Dr. Invention has many ideas.
He writes them all down in his books.
He plans to invent a triangular tent
as well as an oven that cooks.
His soda machine is a scientist’s dream
and his candles are strawberry scented.
I hate to inform him, but I have to warn him,
these things were already invented!
