The lizard is a timid thing
That cannot dance or fly or sing;
He hunts for bugs beneath the floor
And longs to be a dinosaur
By John Gardner
And summer’s warmer winds
Have carried you to me
Upon the brisk and salty scent
Of waves upon the sea
There was a young man from Leeds,
Who ate a whole packet of seeds,
In less than an hour,
His nose was a flower
And his head was a garden of weeds
There was a Young Lady whose chin
Resembled the point of a pin.
So she had it made sharp
And purchased a harp,
And played several tunes with her chin.
I once knew a camel named Slump,
Who could never quite fill up his hump.
The water would leak,
From a hole in his cheek,
And leave him with only a stump.
There was a man from Ealing
Who liked to hang from the __________.

Everyday s/he __________.
But whenever s/he __________.
That strange __________ from __________.
