A Poem for Today

Way down South where bananas grow
A grasshopper stepped on an elephant's toe
The Elephant said, with tears in his eyes
"Pick on somebody your own size."

Not a usual post for this site - but I feel a poem which rattles the walls of one's mental box is worth a mention. It is the poem for the 27th August in Read Me - A Poem A Day for the National Year of Reading, chosen by Gaby Morgan (Macmillan, 1998).
