Brody the emoticon
is famous for his style,
and if you ever meet him,
you will likely see his :-)

But if you come across him
on a day he’s feeling down,
instead of giving you a :-)
he’ll look at you and :-(

On other days he’ll ;-) at you.
He’ll sometimes blow a :-*
and if he’s feeling playful
he’ll stick out his :-P like this.

But, oftentimes, he’s simply bored
and can’t resist a :-O
because there’s nothing else to do
for an emoticon.
