Story Starter/ DeBug Knitty-Nitty

Fussbut's school bell chimed a chime.
 It was 'Teach the Teacher' time.
 The Fussbut Children's School Committee
 had called in DeBug Knitty-Nitty.


DeBug is a clever fellow
 with four hands of golden yellow.
 He is known for being grumpy
 and for looking rather stumpy.


He lives and works with Doctor It
 at a deep-down Puzzling Pit.
 His brain train works out many puzzles
 while the doctor eats and guzzles.
 The puzzles buzz on his outside
 once they leave his inside side.


Doctor tries to work out fixes
 for the puzzles as he mixes
 hints in test tubes and carves shoes.
 The shoes are meant to run off clues.
 But DeBug is a fine code-cracker
 who mostly comes up with the answers.


He taps on hot keys and then flits
 to fetch his treasured knitting kit.
 When Doctor freed him from a net,
 bug DeBug had been upset.


He had given one last hug
 to his sister, Jitter Bug.
 He thinks of Jitter every day
 and wonders if she's far away.


Perhaps, one day, they'll meet again
 at Puzzling Pit, the Dot Plot den.
 Until then, he'll tap and knit
 and hatch new puzzles at the pit.
 Knit one, purl one, knit and then
 think of Jitter once again. ...
