My favourite poem

At work, round two corners from my office, there is an old Poems on the Underground poster with this poem printed in a brilliant bumpy font. It makes me smile every time I walk past.

Don't Call Alligator Long-Mouth till You crossed River

Call alligator long-mouth
call alligator saw-mouth
call alligator pushy-mouth
call alligator raggedy-mouth
call alligator bumby-bum
call alligator all dem rude word

but better wait
till you cross river.

By John Agard (b . 1949)
