He'd shear and shear with gusto, making them fluffy and bright, But Shavelson would stumble and trip, oh what a hilarious sight! With each snip and clip, Shavelson's shears went snicker-snack, He'd wiggle and wobble, causing the sheep to jump and jack. They'd baa and bleat, trying to escape the swift embrace, But Shavelson laughed and giggled, with joy lighting up his face. Shavelson's sheep were shorn and silky, their fleece oh so fine, He'd twirl and twizzle, feeling like a sheep-shearing mastermind. But the tongue twister of it all, oh how it made him laugh, As he glided through the flock, snipping like a merry giraffe. So here's to Shavelson, the sheep-shearing sensation, With shears in hand, he brings laughter to every location. His tongue twister tales of sheep and shear, Will leave you in stitches, with joy and cheer!
