Dikt; The Crocodile av Roald Dahl

'No animal is half as vile
As Crocky-Wock, the crocodile.
On Saturdays he likes to crunch
Six juicy children for his lunch
And he especially enjoys
Just three of each, three girls, three boys.
He smears the boys (to make them hot)
With mustard from the mustard pot.
But mustard doesn't go with girls,
It tastes all wrong with plaits and curls.
With them, what goes extremely well
Is butterscotch and caramel.
It's such a super marvelous treat
When boys are hot and girls are sweet.
At least that's Crocky's point of view
He ought to know. He's had a few.
That's all for now. It's time for bed.
Lie down and rest your sleepy head.
Ssh. Listen. What is that I hear,
Galumphing softly up the stair?

Go lock the door and fetch my gun!
Go on child, hurry! Quickly run!
No stop! Stand back! He's coming in!
Oh, look, that greasy greenish skin!
The shining teeth, the greedy smile!
It's Crocky-Wock, the Crocodile!'

  1. Så gøy å lese dette! På onsdag som var hadde vi besøk av en skuespiller i barnehagen som spilte Den kjempestore krokodillen for oss. Helt alene greide hun å målbinde 35 små barn, og vi voksne satt og humret og lo. Roald Dahl er noe for seg selv :)

    1. Kan forestille meg at den episoden i barnehagen var underholdende.
