- A Storm In A Teacup: : Humour - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

Jeny owns a little brown dog, as cute as cute can be
But don't be in the vicinity when he begins to pee
He'd put grown men to shame, a fire hose looks small-fry
When he cocks his tiny leg, and lets his waters fly

Such a dainty dog you'd think would just produce a drizzle
From his part chihuahua, part something else, pint sized wizzle
But once the spigot opens to relieve the pressure in his urinary sac
The megalitres dammed inside are rapidly unpacked

A microclimate is propagated, its chief feature a monsoon
A puddle was predicted, not a fathoms deep lagoon
And that is why we have christened him with an intention fond
Our super peeing hero's bone shaped tag proudly displays 'Big Pond'

(Sydney, Australia - 2011)
