On The Ning Nang Nong

Poem of the Day

Today is a poem that caused me considerable distress at primary school as my teachers (in vain) tried to make me memorise it. It has stuck in my mind as a nonsense poem that was created as a means of torture for above average intelligence individuals who enjoy a finer quality of poetry.

On The Ning Nang Nong

On the Ning Nang Nong
Where the Cows go Bong!
and the monkeys all say BOO!
There's a Nong Nang Ning
Where the trees go Ping!
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang
And you just can't catch 'em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong
Cows go Bong!
Nong Nang Ning
Trees go ping
Nong Ning Nang
The mice go Clang
What a noisy place to belong
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!
