Likes and Dislikes
To all the places I've once been
I've used a fork and knife and dustbin,
Of all the paints I've ever seen
I like the colour green,
Of all nature that drinks manna dew
I like the tiny flower blue,
Of all things stronger than grass
I like the third-prized brass.
Of all the plants of Africa
I dislike the hostile Paprika,
Of all the travellers daily with us
I dislike drunkards in a bus,
Of all the foodstuffs brought to table
I dislike the meat of wild sable,
Of all the travellers at night
I dislike the bat in flight.
I like those who claim to be brave
I praise him who conquered the grave!
