Young granddaughters are stunners:
Such news is old hat;
Now they’re riddlers and punners –
Where did they get that?
Snakes’ school subject with most fame?
Hissssss-story you seek!
Mice – just name their favourite game?
That’s hide and go squeak!
Favourite pastime of a cow?
Moooo-vies they attend!
Lovesick ballads they sing now?
Moooo-sick your ears bend!
Frogs say about something cool?
Poor pussies who are in school?
Dolphins, you saw some!
Horses in adjoining fields?
Neigh-b’horse, that would be!
Duck quacks when cracked egg it yields?
Right sound, eggs-quacked-ly!
(Adaptations of their stuff,
Altered for the rhyme –
This is much more than enough
For the present time!)
Re the subject heading: maybe I should approach the subject of local dogs doing riddles and punning on rubbish bag collection day (barking, ‘Lettuce pray!’) in the near future?
P.S. This is apparently my 1 111th post on WordPress!
