Ken the Kangaroo

Ken was a clever kangaroo
Who lived a life of leisure,
He didn’t have a thing to do,
Just hopped about with pleasure.

Kathy Koala was his friend
But she was stressed and worried;
She fussed and grumbled without end
And generally was flurried…

The two were ever quibbling
About what to do together –
Ken wanted songs and fiddling,
Kathy to work forever.

So Ken just hopped and skipped along
While Kathy always laboured,
Neither was she right nor was he wrong,
They each their lifestyle savoured.

  2. That is so sweet but I do feel sorry for both
    of them, so totally mis-matched, a bit like the Owl
    and the Pussy cat...but then they got married..
    Funny stuff,,
    Best wishes,
    ABCW team.

  3. Nicholas, what fun this is! And also how true... There are many odd couples like that that I know personally and it is interesting to watch them interact when I visit them. Well, they say opposites attract, but there must be some common ground otherwise they each get sick of the other's incompatible qualities.
