Nasrudin, Donkey, And Wild Animals - Poem by Raj Arumugam

Bang! Bang!
Dong-gang! Dong-Dong,

O, all day
is making all this din
in his home
beating drums and his pots and pans

Hee-haw! Hee-haw!
Hee-haw – haw! haw! haw!

And his Donkey too
all day
master and Donkey
making all this noise

O Nasrudin, why
do you make this din and noise -
you and your Donkey
all day long?

O, says Nasrudin,
Donkey and I are
trying to frighten away
all tigers and wild animals
to keep away from our town

But Nasrudin – there’s isn’t a single tiger
or a wild animal
a thousand miles
round our town!

See! says Nasrudin
Our method works!

Hee-haw! Hee-haw!
Donkey agrees
