FUNNY ANIMALS (limerick)

a poem by Jacinta Ramayah, Malaysia - poetry writer, author, poet

There once was a cat with nine lives,
That lived with a litter of wives,
No kitten as son,
No mittens that run,
Lone dad he be if he survives.

A dog sat by wagging his tail,
Loud blast and he started to wail,
Crawled under a chair,
Sounds followed him there,
With ear-plugs, he hid in a pail.

A frog, a sweet prey it did spy,
It flicked out its tongue for a fly,
The food was divine,
Like honey with wine,
But eagles do watch in the sky.

A horse it did gallop and neigh,
I got on its back, it said nay,
From high, a great fall,
Not funny at all,
Walked crooked and dazed the whole day.

A bear held me tight in its grip,
I bolted to give it the slip,
Was right behind me,
Played dead to get free,
Wish I had not gone on that trip.
