Footballing Donkey (A Poem For Children)


He plays football for the Rovers,
he has control and he has class.
He is dynamite at shooting,
he can play the perfect pass.

He’s our top scoring player,
he scores in every game.
When he scores the fans go nuts,
they always sing his name.

Our donkey is Brazilian,
he has that Brazilian flair.
He moves around the pitch so fast,
it’s like he’s everywhere.

His skill got us to Wembley,
we swayed to his Brazilian grooves.
He’s our most talented player,
he can kick with all four hooves.

When he played in the final,
we beat United six – three.
When donkey lifted the cup,
he was happy as can be.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
