Friday poem: The Guppy

Apparently I sound like a guppy when I sleep. Better than a diesel engine, I suppose! More from comic genius Ogden Nash…

The Guppy – Ogden Nash

Whales have calves,
Cats have kittens,
Bears have cubs,
Bats have bittens,
Swans have cygnets,
Seals have puppies,
But guppies just have little guppies.
