P...P...Pick Up A Penguin


Pete's a Patagonian penguin,

A paddling perky bird.

Peacefully plodding on pack ice,

And peculiarly absurd.


Pete is plump and piebald.

He preys on prawns for lunch.

He's a predator of prodigious power,

And packs a powerful punch.


Pete's pride are his pale pink pyjamas,

They're pretty and patterned with plants.

He poses in polka dot plimsoles,

And posh pleated purple pants.


Pete's got a pen pal called Percy,

He's a potty perverted pest.

He pecks and picks on petrel chicks,

Pulls puffins off their nests.


So if you want to p...p...pick up a penguin,

Be prepared for a Percy or Pete,

'Cus your perception of penguin perfection,

Could be walloped by waddling feet!

Sultry Alice

Very very good. I loved the alliteration effect also and the rhymes. This one is even better if you speak it out loud, I mean if your good at tongue twisters!

Much enjoyed.

Thanks Sultry and I think you will agree that this is a great example of how to write poetry.

I just so ha-p-p-en to like p-p-penguins! I don't know about Batman. I wouldn't want to kee-p-p one though however! I like your p-poem and it gets a vote from me.

Unlike Batman there is more than one "Joker" on this site...haha. This was our first posting and reflects top class poetry writing and humour. Thanks Stormbird.

I note you have commented a couple more times, so I will keep the other comments brief, if that's ok...see you.
