HAVING FUN WITH HOMONYMS

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

It would be cool to buzz like a bee,
Bore into the soil like a boar,
Ride on a burro to the borough,
To caw like a crow would thrill to the core.

It’d be strange to hear a whale wail,
See a bear skinny and bare,
Espy an ape without fur on a fir tree
And watch a fair gorilla have a hearty fare.

What can a dear little deer do with dew
And a horse with a neigh that’s hoarse
One chews cud then quenches its thirst
The other can choose to sing coarse, of course!
