The Monster - Poem by Khadim Hussain

Deep in the African jungle
Lives a strange creature.

Has the teeth of a lion
The claws of a bear.

If by chance you stumble upon him
Don’t be alarmed.

He lives entirely on crisps and sherbet
Not only will he share his last crisp and
Also polish your boots too.
