Out of the dark and mysterious void,
Came a thunderously loud humanoid.
"This will end in tears," he said,
So I turned around and went back to bed.

But into the bed came the humanoid,
With an evil look in 'is eye...
"Preparation H is awl I noyd"
'Cuz we serve it for dinner with pie.

Then it directed my gaze to the heavens,
The Blue One. Next to the fish!
I flew here on rainbows with fins.
Is this some kind of death wish?

No; merely wish-fulfilment, I thought,
Now two wishes left. I guess I ought
To do what I knows best, and

Good thinking, Master PH. A clear set of instructions, particularly for some lower lifeforms like me, would be most helpful.

EDIT:
No, no, hell no. Not part of the poem.

Now, where did we get to?

Out of the dark and mysterious void,
Came a thunderously loud humanoid.
"This will end in tears," he said,
So I turned around and went back to bed.

But into the bed came the humanoid,
With an evil look in 'is eye...
"Preparation H is awl I noyd"
'Cuz we serve it for dinner with pie.

Then it directed my gaze to the heavens,
The Blue One. Next to the fish!
I flew here on rainbows with fins.
Is this some kind of death wish?

No; merely wish-fulfilment, I thought,
Now two wishes left. I guess I ought
To do what I knows best, and
Go play with the Toys what I bought.

So I lined up all the toys,
and called all the girls and boys
