The Animal Couplet game

 
 
Reply Sat 22 Nov, 2003 06:13 am
Four animals, two rhyming couplets, each animal must be mentioned in the proper line.

Example:

bear
loon
tiger
wallaby

The bear stalks, and seems quite addled.
The loon balks, and trys to paddle.
Weeping tiger hunts his prey,
The wallaby just hops away.

After each submission, post a new list of 4 animals for the others.

Trouser eel then, gustav....nice work.

The monkey is omnivorous,
the frog is quite amphibious.
The zebra does enjoy his stripes.
To a good swallow, holy cripes!

Oops, let's go from SealPoet's list...

The yak has fur that's kinda rough,
the tiger's stripes are not enough,
to save them from the rhino's fate,
as for giraffes, is it too late?

I shall just resubmit my list:

capybara
pangolin
hamster
tapir

The duck's green head proves it's a mallard
the crow sings mournful murder ballards,
the earthworm likes being corporeal,
the slender loris prefers arboreal.

cow
praying mantis
bald eagle
daddy long legs

Look at that, it's a running duck it's
Fleeing the crow who's trying to kiss it.
Earthworm on the pavement will soon be flat
Slender loris eats junk food will soon be fat.

mouse
parakeet
snake
rabbit

The cockatoo has handsome fronds,
the blowfish swells up good in ponds.
The thorny devil squirts his eyes,
tadpoles mourn the turtle's cries.

Even though farmerman screwed up the animal/line thingy, we will proceed with his list for the sake of fun. Is that "urchin" you mean there?

Petruchio tamed a Shrew
While a mole spied through the windoow
But a pigeon flew by and scared the guy
And a wasp bit him right in the eye.
