Stew - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

A hippo chick
with walking stick
and hippie chook
were stalking Wook.
The Chinaman
named Mein-a-chen
and lying Kraut
were crying loud
So who has stirred
this stew of words?

    The more I read it, the more I see how clever this is. It's certainly a stew of words, very impressive and I thoroughly enjoyed it, funnily enough. Good bit of letter changing. Sincerely Ernestine. (Report) Reply
