~*~ Eletelephony ~*~
By: – Laura Elizabeth Richards
Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant–
No! No! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone–
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I’ve got it right).
Howe’er it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;
The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee–
(I fear I’d better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!)
~*~ THE OCTOPUS~*~
By: – Ogden Nash
Tell me, O Octopus, I begs
Is those things arms, or is they legs?
I marvel at thee, Octopus;
If I were thou, I’d call me Us.
~*~ My Baby Brother~*~
By: – Bruce Lansky
My baby brother is so small,
he’s hardly even there at all.
The only way that we can find him
is by the smell he leaves behind him.
