I said Bum!

A Slightly Mental Poem about Animals and Fruit

I’ve written quite a few poems over the last five years and will be producing a book of poetry sometime early in 2013. They’re mainly nonsense poems like this one:

A Slightly Mental Poem about Animals and Fruit

The monkey was a hippo,
The hippo was an ape,
The apple was an orange,
The orange was a grape,
The trumpet was a trombone,
The trombone was a drum,
The piggy was a big fat cow,
With a blister on its bum.

I said bum. (That’s not part of the poem).
