Underneath - Poem by Cheryl Cheng

The ladder goes 'clang clang'
As I step down flights

My feet go 'plish splash'
As I walk into the cave

The water goes 'drip drop'
As it falls down the stalactite.

The bats go 'ee ee'
As they fly around the cavern

The tourists mumble and grumble
As they look in marvel

And all of it are echoed.
Throughout the vast walls.
Of this magnificent cave.

    Yesh yesh, this was my onomatopoeia poem.
    I thought so too, but I decided, WHAT THE HEY WHO CARES.
    I got inspired as I was procrastinating and I saw my french textbook! : D

    LOL was this for your onomatopoeia poem?
    I thought we had to follow the [[extremely aggravating]] format: / So mine is bleh. Anyways, nice poem! Reminds me a bit of 'On the Ning Nang Nong' by Spike Mulligan. It's...more than a little weird, but funny though. xD
