Poetry by Jeff Green


The strangest things live in my house

I had a funny little thing.
I kept it on a shelf
And then it had a baby.
It did it by itself!
I don’t know what to call it.
It never seems to move.
I’d like to get another
But the first may not approve.
All I know about it,
Is it loves its baby thing
And anytime the baby sleeps
I can hear the mummy sing!
