This is my entry in ABC WEDNESDAY this week. I missed last week because of my computer melt-down. More child's-play. I'm enjoying my Second Childhood! The letter is, of course, 'K'.
I have posted 'K' photographs on my PLUS blog and a story 'Knave of Hearts' on my ETT SETTERA blog as well. Making up for lost time!
A kookaburra likes to laugh
At everything he sees,
But, mostly, at the kangaroo,
For he has such funny knees!
His front legs are just hanging there
You'd almost say that they were spare,
And yet he doesn't turn a hair
At comments such as these.
His back legs are grotesquely long,
Like two legs joined in one!
They're made of muscle, very strong
For bounding in the sun.
And he enjoys a favourite trick,
Giving an enemy a kick,
Not a good enemy to pick!
A fight would not be fun.
So kookaburra laughs all day
As kookaburras do.
He makes rude comments in this way
And most of them are true.
But he only mocks from on a fence.
A kookaburra isn't dense.
He knows it makes a lot of sense
To laugh...... then fly away!
Now that's funny, I do love this poem. Great picture of the beer swilling Kangaroo.
Another great choice, another great ode.
That was a fun poem! Did you write it?
I always wondered what a kookabura was : ) and now I know : ). Thanks for sharing this GREAT K! Hope your day is delightful! God bless. PS I LOVE your songs that play on your page. SO much fun!
Wonderful poem and nice pic of the kangaroo.
My 'K'is forKALA-KHATTA and for the theme LINES, I have power transmission lines and electric cables over railways with Raghuleela Mall and International Infotech Park in the background.
the pic is lovely and the poem superb!
We are predictable indeed. I beat you to it; I posted kookaburra in the second round of ABC Wednesday. But yours is so original! I will be back to read more of your poems.
I love this! What an interesting read this is to start my day with!

I love the kangeroo having a brew. Someday I'd like to see one in person...kangeroo that is! Thanks for your post.
Well I must say I like your song about the kangaroo. I had the kookaburra song on my blog for Camera Critters. Lovely animals. In Queensland there are wallabies, but I haven't seen any big kangaroos. Very nice post thanks!
Perfect post from Oz!
