Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


When Noah gathered creatures pair by pair In a barge ready to face the rough storm Giraffe and wife joined a sail to nowhere; As waters growled high, till moon grew deformed With nothing to frolic with, amidst the flood Giraffes delighted in hush of ashen dark Mating frequently on arc's trodden halls. New animals born, how can they embark And others followed despite bold rainfalls The Lord shocked, watching full procreation Said He, “ I forgot this extra supply Count the babes ,while I slow the sea’s motion, Why did I say, go forth and multiply?” ..................
