    It was really surprising to know that Dahl was from wales, his poems are simple, with a comic touch and amazingly rhyming.

Best Poem of Roald Dahl


The most important thing we've learned,
So far as children are concerned,
Is never, NEVER, NEVER let
Them near your television set --
Or better still, just don't install
The idiotic thing at all.
In almost every house we've been,
We've watched them gaping at the screen.
They loll and slop and lounge about,
And stare until their eyes pop out.
(Last week in someone's place we saw
A dozen eyeballs on the floor.)
They sit and stare and stare and sit
Until they're hypnotised by it,
Until they're absolutely drunk
With all that shocking ghastly junk.

Read the full of Television

Down They Go...

Down they go!
Hail and snow!
Freezes and sneezes and noses will blow!
