If You Should Meet... by Anonymous

If you should meet a crocodile,
Don’t take a stick and poke him;
Ignore the welcome in his smile,
Be careful not to stroke him.
For as he sleeps upon the Nile,
He thinner gets and thinner;
And whene’re you meet a crocodile
He’s ready for his dinner.

From Oh Such Foolishness!

Here is a new compendium of foolish verse from the nonsense archives of William Cole. Many poets, both the well known and the Anon., have taken pen in hand to describe the hippopotamus, the sausage, purple eyeglasses, sneezes, spaghetti, and other important subjects.

These laughable lines are complemented by Tomie de Paola’s droll ink-and-pencil drawings, which are every bit as comical as the delectably ridiculous poems.

Caution: If you are on a laugh-free diet, do not read this book!
