The Ender Farmer by Leo McNally (First Prize)

Dark at night when the bats are scary
You aren’t likely to see a fairy.
The Endermen come out to play,
And roam around all through the day.

Sometimes they work, sometimes they go
To far off places, to and fro.
They are busy farmers planting crops.
Wheat and carrots, spuds and hops.

The Endermen don’t like a bath.
They take a teleporting path.
They hide behind a nearby hill,
And crouch down staying very still.

They stay behind a garden gnome.
Deep within their own biome.
Their purple eyes look out at night,
And then shine brightly in the light.
