A Poem for the Week

The peacocks' feathers

Pigs' tails are dirty,
Cats are naughty,
Dogs do their duty,
But peacocks' feathers are filled with beauty.

Rabbits are wonderful,
Snakes are harmful,
A pangolin is beautiful,
But peacocks' feathers are colourful.

A kitten belongs to a cat,
A mouse is called a rat,
A cat lies on a mat,
But peacocks' feathers are fat.

Birds can't fly without a wing,
A swan doesn't wear a ring,
On humans, honeybees
usually sting,
But peacocks' feathers are quite amazing.

A hippopotamus doesn't have a teacher,
Monkeys usually don't have a nice feature,
I don't like scavengers like the vulture,
But the peacock is the best.

Suwanthijay Thiyagarajah (10 years), Republican International School
