Each state is special in its shape:
Wyoming’s corners crisply square
As ever fresh from barber’s chair;
Missouri takes Italian route
And sports a heel upon its boot;
An aching knot is plainly spread
Where Minnesota bumped its head.
But some, as if from giant stove
Can boast a handle — here’s a trove:
Of Florida and Idaho,
And Oklahoma joins the show
With Texas (just in case you missed);
A couple others make the list.
The states without one — such a scandal!
No wonder some fly off the handle.
