Instructions for Grecon Owners

by Valerie Towers

Never wash a Grecon
’cos his wire will turn to rust
Re-wire him, redress him,
re-face him if you must.


A broken leg will start to droop
If he’s lost a foot you’re in the soup.
His hair might thin and legs unwind,
His face may fade, but you won’t mind
Because he’ll become your dearest friend
Although moth WILL get him in the end!
