My Donkey's Education


There is no need at all,
No need,
In educating my Donkey,
He yaps and yaps,
At the presence of civilised guests,
He yaps-
Anyway, he seems to care less,
After all he lacks elementary education.

There is no solution,
Not any,
In taming my Donkey,
He kicks and kicks,
Brewing fracas and atrocities,
He breathes torture and murder,
I regret for not giving him some religious education,
Unfortunately he can't understand the bible.

And such a Donkey can't defend himself up,
He works and works yet grins like a mania,
But I don't blame him,
For he belongs to no workers' union,
Possibly he lacks civic education.

Who will give my Donkey some basic education?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
