Contagion

Elephants are contagious!
Be careful how you tread.
An Elephant that's been trodden on
Should be confined to bed!

Leopards are contagious too.
Be careful tiny tots.
They don't give you a temperature
But lots and lots - of spots.

The Herring is a lucky fish
From all disease inured.
Should he be ill when caught at sea;
Immediately - he's cured!

ORANGES DON'T SNEEZE By Josie Whitehead A cod's a very lucky fish For he contains Omega 3 – So he never gets arthritis – No, that’s just reserved for me. Oranges are lucky too Full of Vitamin C – You’ll never hear an orange sneeze – But the sneezes come to me. A salmon never writes a poem – It's quite tricky, as you see. Yet they say that salmon feeds the brain – So, I’ll buy some for my tea. Poets - do you eat salmon? copyright 2007 www.whiteheadm.co.uk
