Chacun À Son Berlitz

Chacun À Son Berlitz

French is easy.
 At speaking French I am the champ of the Champs-Élysée,
 And since I can speak Parisian without a flaw,
 I will tell you why the crows, or les corbeaux, always win their
 battle against the scarecrows: it's on account of their
 esprit de caw.

The Rhinoceros by Ogden Nash

Another poem from Your Animal Poems with a drawing by Quentin Blake.

Rhino

The Rhino is a homely beast,
For human eyes he’s not a feast,
But you and I will never know
Why Nature chose to make him so.
Farewell, farewell, you old rhinoceros,
I’ll stare at something less prepoceros.
