Ze Dog und Cat und Alligator und Elephant und Chicken
« on: October 17, 2007, 02:05 PM »
Once was a dog Harry Barely
whose hiney was so very hairy
twas so hot in the summer
now that was a bummer
so he shaved it, now Harry sweats rarely

Once was a kitty named catty
her job was to catch Mr. Ratty
with fang and with claw
she pursued him with awe
he escaped cause she was overweight

(in the last line above your mind automatically uses the word "fatty")

Old knob was a proud alligator
whose temper was much like a satyr
he’d slam shut his jaws
to Greta’s applause
and he instantly knew he could dater

Old Blue was a great ancient Elephant
whose temper had made him be ill and rant
his joints were so stiff
and his trunk couldn’t sniff
and his tusks had become quite irrelephant

Betsy Trotwood was quite a slick chicken
she only pecked at the best pickens’
she laid apple pies
to the farmer’s surprise
and he said “now don’t that beat the dickens”!

These were really cute. I, of course, love the chicken one.

Of course, Betsy Trotwood was a character in Dickens' "David Copperfield". It's time to get new chicks next spring.
