I CAN'T TELL A
TOAD FROM A SHARK

(A Limerick)


By Josie Whitehead

I Can't Tell a Toad from a Shark

I can’t tell a toad from a shark.

Perhaps that’s because it is dark.

       But in daylight it’s clear –

       Oh, there’s nothing to fear,

For you’ll recognize each by their bark.

 

A fairy’s abnormal, it’s true

But most ‘normal’ fairies are blue.

        If you think that’s a lie,

        Well just look at the sky!

Oh! What I’ve just told you’s untrue!!!

 

There was an old man with no hair

Who said: ‘Tell me just why should I care?

         My old comb’s never used

         And I’m far less confused

With a head that is cool now it’s bare.’

 

There was an old man from Peru

Who said: ‘My goodness’ and ‘What shall I do?

         My llama has strayed

         And I’m sadly dismayed

For I think that he’s gone to a zoo.’
