Edward Lear

Out of the Mouth of Babes #NaPoWriMo2016 #GloPoWriMo2016


Today’s Na/GloPoWriMo2016 challenge – to write a poem that begins with a line from a another poem (not necessarily the first one), but then goes elsewhere with it. I’m continuing yesterday’s nonsense with a modern continuation of Edward Lear’s The Owl and the Pussy Cat.

The owl and the pussy cat went to sea
In a rickety pea-green boat
The world turned its back, and turned them around
’cause refugees don’t get a vote
