Poems From Kafuro

A POEM
LAW OF THE JUNGLE
Man has decided
He’ll defend wild animals
And care very little
About fellow human beings.
Crazy………Crazy!

For killing the innocent monkey
In that protected game reserve
You get three years imprisonment
With hard labor.
Imagine……..Imagine!

But the innocent monkey
Ate crops in my small garden,
It destroyed the little I had
To feed my wife and twelve children.
Right…….Right!

Why didn’t you report
The monkey to the authorities?
Who gave you permission to kill
That innocent monkey?
What…….What?
And who gave that monkey
Permission to eat my maize?
Did you, my judge, do you?
True…….True!

For arguing with the judge
In this court of law
You get additional sentence,
Two plus three equals five
You’ll rot in prison for five years.
Aaaah…….Aaaah!’

POEM WRITTEN BY CHRIS

A POEM
IF I MET
If I met a crow
I should say “Caa-Caa!”
If I met a lamb
I should say “Baa-Baa!”
If I met a cow
I should say “Moo-moo!”
If I met a dove
I should say “Coo-Coo!”
If I met a dog
I should say “Bow-Bow!”
If I met a cat
I should say “Mi-aouw!”
If I met a crocodille
What should I say?
Why-nothing at all!
I should
Just
RUN AWAY!
WRITTEN BY PROSSY

    Prossy’s was really interesting and i was waiting to know the sound of the crocodile only to realise that Prossy was just going to take off. So what is the sound of a crocodile???
    I still want to know……

    I like Prossy’s poem using animal sounds- it made me laugh when the crocodile appeared!

    Well done P7. Some really great poems! Chris’ poem was very thought provoking while Prossy’s really made me laugh; it’s the kind of poem that we find in many poetry anthologies for children in England. Keep up the good work!
