On The Ning Nang Nong

On the Ning Nang Nong
Where the Cows go Bong!
and the monkeys all say BOO!
There's a Nong Nang Ning
Where the trees go Ping!
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang
And you just can't catch 'em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong
Cows go Bong!
Nong Nang Ning
Trees go ping
Nong Ning Nang
The mice go Clang
What a noisy place to belong
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!

Very well done Alison full of feeling and great title. Séamus
Right, it takes a lot of skill to create good rhyme. That you couple it with reportage and create a wonderful and pleasing piece. The title is very good. I like to move into this area myself. Some people frown on rhyme, I still think that there is a lot more to be done with it.
