Biography of Mbongo Zoobistatoo
I have ben riteng poemz since I was knee-high to a pouch rat! My poppa said i could poetise about anything, but i lik snaks best...in my country meny sneks live in harmony wit me and my people, and we sometimes like too eet dem so much. i also write poems about de monkeys and shimpases dat roam and play gregariously in my jungle.
De snakes to de left, de snakes to de right.
De snakes are following me day and night.
I want to eat dem, to fry dem fo meal…
I want dem to bite me on my heel.
Der fangs so sharp, so pointy and shiney,
Der fangs dey bite me on my hiney…
I want to pull dem, and take all their venom,
To put my golden dental fillings in ‘em.
