Well make a peom about jimbo the happy cod and enter it then.
Jimbo was a happy cod, as happy as could be.
He never worried or complained; his life was trouble-free.
When Jimbo's friends would ask him "what's the secret to your glee?"
He said "I'm just a cod - what the hell could bother me?"

Where art thou, oh Billycock Hill,
And where is old Uncle Bill?
He lived on the hill in the cold cold mill,
Old wild but gentle Bill!

Where are the goats, old Uncle Bill,
The goats of the order of Gruff?
These noble goats they gave their coats
To make old Bill a ruff!

On the lonely hill lived poor old Bill,
He was marooned up there for life,
They trapped him there with not a care,
Old Bill and his young wife!

The rains they fell, the winds they blew,
Bill's struggles they never would end!
He used his knife to save his life,
His wife his only friend!

But then of course were the noble goats,
They were his friends as well,
They were loyal and brave and never grave,
With the sound of their cheerful bell!

These goats I name were a spirited bunch,
A spirited trio were they,
But brave and bold with hearts of gold,
A price they had to pay!

Their baby goat, he had to die,
For the sake of poor old Bill,
He took the goat's life with the stroke of a knife,
On the lonely, windswept hill!

This deed they did, this life they took,
They did it for the best!
They all did dote on the wee little goat,
For he was the stronger than the rest!

But die in vain the goat did not,
For two human lives were saved!
Old Bill and his wife had the rest of their life
Thanks to the path the goat had paved!

What a feast they had in their hunger
On that lonely, windswept day!
But in their delight they had to fight
The tears for their friend away!

In joy there mingled sadness,
But they knew they had to move on!
The kid had died and had been fried,
But his parents were sound and strong!

So after this day of mixed feelings,
Old Bill and his wife grew well!
They set up a mill on the deserted hill,
And never did grow ill!

The hill in detail they got to know,
They knew every little nook!
They lived in hope, and learned to cope,
And not a goat did they have to cook!

The regal goats they helped old Bill
By providing milk and cheese!
And on the hill was never a kill,
But he learnt to farm the bees!

So with the bees he made some honey,
Some honey he managed to produce!
His wife was pleased, for she grew tired of cheese,
So her share she was able to reduce!

So by the mill were a number of hives,
Built purely from new, fresh wood!
For many of the trees were good enough to please
The craftmanship of dear old Bill!

One day did come a majestic stag,
A stag did come one day!
He was at death's door, he fell to the floor,
And later he was cold as clay!

Now sad as they were, old Bill and his wife,
To see the poor stag dead,
Such a treat indeed it was to eat meat
That they ate the stag with bread!

His antlers were useful for making tools,
So improvements were made to their home,
From carpet to drape, the house took shape,
Right down to the garden gnome!

Before too long they made a discovery,
That rabbits lived on the hill!
The rabbits took flight in their justified fright,
But some returned dead to the mill!

What a substitute to their diet were these rabbits three,
After living mostly on cheese!
Once again they were sad as well as being glad,
But the rabbits did a lot to please!

So in this manner their lives took place,
Upon that lonely old hill!
They killed their food when they were in the mood,
But often enough cheese was their fill!

They grew to love what had once been their prison,
They knew they would never leave!
Yet in an ironic twist Bill sprained his wrist,
Which was reason enough to grieve!

And while poor old Bill was out of action,
His young wife ran the mill,
She learnt to cope but was inclined to mope,
On the lonely, deserted hill!

But soon old Bill he did recover,
And was back to work round the farm!
For farm it was and all because
Of the animals safe from harm!

To the bees, the goats, and now the pigeons,
The mill their home for real,
And since they came the birds grew tame,
And provided the occasional meal!

The animals and the humans,
They lived safely in the mill,
Old Bill and his wife they carved out their life,
On the lonely and desolate hill!

And so continued their peaceful life,
Their life continued so,
But then one day they found some clay,
And Bill's pottery skills did grow!

With his new-found skill old Bill did make,
A selection of pots and dishes,
And when they discovered a pond they grew quite fond
Of cooking the nutritious fishes!

How well they lived on the lonely hill,
They learnt to love the land,
Through wind and rain they were never in vain,
Their life was never bland!

Old Bill and his wife spent the rest of their days
Upon that lonely old hill!
And as far as I know, they never did go,
They loved their dear old mill!

I would like to thank the Famous Five,
Their hill name they did lend,
And of course the goats did force
The heart warming story of their friend!

LOL!!
I've met him, I can confirm he's a guy

There was a poem that a guy on American Wife Swap wrote his wife upon her return, I think it's worthy of mention:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I can't wait 'til you're here.
