Treasure Island

Jack Prelutsky

(8 September 1940 / Brooklyn, New York)

A Wolf Is at the Laundromat


A wolf is at the Laundromat,
it's not a wary stare-wolf,
it's short and fat, it tips its hat,
unlike a scary glare-wolf.
It combs its hair, it clips its toes,
it is a fairly rare wolf,
that's only there to clean its clothes—
it is a wash-and-wear-wolf.

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
