AH DAMN you said C not C

The Greatest A to Z  
Aardvark based Nonsense Poetry in the World 

Poetry is easy . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . or so some say
So through the ALPHABET . . . . . .I will play
Starting right here . . . here with the letter A
AND a rather silly nonsense poem, to end the day.

So to the distant sound of a mad dogs bark.
I’ll start AT the start with thee AARDVARK.


The BEE and the BEAR met a BEAVER
Who looked rather aggressive with a large meat cleaver?
He shouted be gone, BACK off, and leave me BE
I’m BUSY chopping down, this BIG tree.

So the BEE he BUZZED and the BEAR he growled
And a BANSHEE somewhere BEHIND them howled
And that then made the mad dog BARK
Then what turned up BUT another Aardvark

DAMN (again)

Here we are by the C
All blue and wavy and a little wet maybe
With Caterpillars Cute and Cudl-eee. . . (No its not Cheating)
And we all run about on the Count of three.
As Crabs and Catfish play in the bay
Or so the gnarled old Seadogs do say
But Seadogs are mad and tend to bark
Arousing the monstrous Sea Aardvark



Talking of Ships I would like to say to everyone

As he sets sail towards the Letter Z
(please note the LETTER C does contain words of an Adult Nature)

You are a one Mr H


  1. A sea Aardvark? I've heard sea cows, sea horses, and even sea dragons, but I've never heard of a sea aardvark.
    I don't know if I can handle this level of folly!

    (I can, keep it up!)

    1. A chap has to find his rhymes where he can, this nonsense poetry can be a bit of a game.

  2. Now I see what you're doing here. Pretty clever. Though, if you're going to simply copy all previous entries in the next letter, can I just wait until the end of the month and read the whole story that way? And I don't think "cuddly" (or as you put it "cudl-EEEE") is cheating at all.

    1. I decided to do this so that folk passing from the A to Z got to read the entire alphabet so far all in one go. It does however mean regulars can run off and wait until Z, although I am hoping they have not thought of that. . . . . . . . . DAMN I should not have said that.

  3. For a poem about Aardvarks, I have to say, they make precious few appearances.

    1. The thing is Mr Flip I cant draw Aardvarks. I have tried but I struggle with their scaly skin, pointy teeth and huge wings. I have managed the long tail and I can even draw fiery breath and flared nostrils.

      But my drawings tend to look a bit like moles.

    2. Damn moles, I get so tired of sacrificing young virgins to the moles every year so they won't eat our crops and grow on our witches noses with hair growing out of them. Or was that Aardvarks? I get so confused.

  4. HA! I am loving this Aardvark!

    1. Thanks for hanging in there so far

  5. Never heard of a sea Aardvark before. I wonder how many other types there are :)

    1. Its mainly regular Aardvarks in the poetry Miss Laura. . . although an old Aardvark does wander by soon

  6. I love what you're doing here! Very clever, and funny. I think it will be a success. Also, your drawings are amazing. Love your style. And your humor!

    1. Very kind of you to say so, I do try and do the A to Z kind of full on. . . .

  7. The sea aardvark is scaring me just a bit
    but you covered the tale with lots of wit
    so I continued to read your tale
    but now I'll set sail

  8. I think I need a picture of an angry aardvark.

  9. The artwork is quite good. Or should I call it "Aardvark work"?

  10. I know i am a month late - but thankyou for the link Rob.
    I am whizzing through them and plan to leave a little poem of my own at the end for you!

    1. Hello Mr H. I missed rather a lot of comments here but I am slowly on catch up. And I will always help if I can, just say the word (Although I am keeping it a secret in case everyone starts shouting it).
