"What's that I hear?
It's loud and it's clear,
and it's getting quite near."
said the gnat.
"My goodness, oh dear!
It's a lorry, I fear!
I should get out of here before..!"

Thanks M. I'm not really one for advertising myself, so hopefully one or two people will stumble on this page and enjoy these little bits of nonsense.
Ok I have to ask what is a lorry. S.R.
A lorry is a truck. Its a word used here in Ireland and the UK mostly, I suppose. I needed a 2-syllable word, so "truck" didn't cut it. I suppose I could have said "big truck" or something. But being Irish, I used the local language.
Maybe when my SPLAT!! book sells its first million copies I'll bring out a US version with "big truck" instead of "lorry".
thank you now I have learned something lol. lorry sounds better than big truck S.R.
I think it sounds better too. Though if I thought that a lot of people would not know the word, I'd have to think about changing it to something more universal. But for now, it stays as lorry!
This is one in a series of 5 splat poems. By all means check out the others:
