Don't ever ask a centipede
to play a game of soccer.
Remember, he has 50 pairs
of sneakers in his locker.
He dribbles 50 soccer balls
with 50 pairs of shoes,
and kicks them all concurrently.
He doesn't often lose.
He's such a fierce competitor
that, if you ever meet,
at first you'll see his hundred legs
and then you'll see defeat.
How Doth the Little Crocodile by Lewis Carroll
How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!
How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws
I've a cobra that does calculus
And an anaconda that loves algebra
I've a grass snake that does geometry
And a python that adores pythagoras
So it's just my luck to waste 10 bucks
On a puff adder that's asthmatic.
