The Crocodile Written by Roald Dahl

Read on to know a very famous poem The crocodile written by a famous writer Roald Dahl.

The Crocodile

“No animal is half as vile
As Crocky–Wock, the crocodile
On Saturdays he likes to crunch
Six juicy children for his lunch
And he especially enjoys
Just three of each, three girls, three boys
He smears the boys (to make them hot)
With mustard from the mustard pot
But mustard doesn’t go with girls,
It tastes all wrong with plaits and curls.
With them, what goes extremely well?
Is butterscotch and caramel
It’s such a super marvelous treat
When boys are hot and girls are sweet.
At least that’s Crocky’s point of view
He ought to know. He’s had a few.
That’s all for now. It’s time for bed.
Lie down and rest your sleepy head.
Ssh. Listen. What is that I hear,
Galumphing softly up the stair?

Go lock the door and fetch my gun!
Go on child, hurry! Quickly run!
No stop! Stand back! He’s coming in!
Oh, look, that greasy greenish skin!
The shining teeth, the greedy smile!
It’s Crocky–Wock, the Crocodile!”
