STEW MUCH - Sukumar Ray Poems


Poems » sukumar ray » stew much

A duck once met a porcupine; they formed a corporation
Which called itself a Porcuduck (a beastly conjugation!).

A stork to a turtle said, "Let's put my head upon your torso;
We who are so pretty now, as Stortle would be more so!"

The lizard with the parrot's head thought: taking to the chilli
After years of eating worms is absolutely silly.

A prancing goat - one wonders why - was driven by a need
To bequeath its upper portion to a crawling centipede.

The giraffe with grasshopper's limbs reflected: Why should I
Go for walks in grassy fields, now that I can fly?

The nice contented cow will doubtless get a frightful shock
On finding that its lower lombs belong to a fighting cock.

It's obvious the Whalephant is not a happy notion:
The head goes for the jungle, while the tail turns to the ocean,

The lion's lack of horns distressed him greatly, so
He teamed up with a deer - now watch his antlers grow!
