The Camel
(August 19, 1902 – May 19, 1971 / New York / United States)

The Camel

The camel has a single hump;
The dromedary , two;
Or else the other way around.
I'm never sure. Are you?

I don't know why, but at a young age when my mother liked to take me to the children's library section in South Pasadena, California, I found an Ogden Nash book... and of all the poems there this Camel Poem is the only one which has stuck in my noggin for over 60 years. I still get enjoyment out of it.: -)
Very tricky question, nicely written...
