MY FAVORITE POEMS
Both of these poems are writen by Unknown Authors.
If you read each one and think about them they both will give you a special meaning. They both have taught me alot about life.

GOLDFISH
Consider the goldfish, a household pet,
You have nothing to do but keep him wet.
His bearing is mild, his manners are neat,
His face is clean and his breath is sweet.

He doesn't bark or scratch or sting,
Or search out at night in search of a fling.
He doesn't shed feathers or furs or hairs,
All over your sofa, carpet or chairs.


You'll never find him underfoot,
Wherever you put him, he'll always stay put.
He asks for little here below,
Just food to eat and room to grow.

If either of these is long denied,
When you look in his bowl, he'll have quietly died.

THE MONKEY'S DISGRACE
Three monkeys sat in a coconut tree,
Discussing things as they are said to be.

Said one to the others; 'now listen you two,'
'There's a rumor around that can't be true.'

'That man descended from our noble race,'
'The very idea is a great disgrace,'

'No monkey ever deserted his wife,'
'Starved her babies and ruined her life.'

'And you've never known a mother monk,'
'To leave her babies with others to bunk.'

'Or pass from one on to another,'
'Till they scarcely know who is their mother.'

'Here's another thing a monkey won't do,'
'Go out at night and get on a stew.'

'Or use a club, gun or knife.'
'To take some other monkey's life.'

'Yes man decended the ordinary cuss,'
'But brother he didn't decend it from us.'
