Stephen Katona Poems
Koko's poem for Robin Williams
How I wish you'd let me know, Before you decided to go. When you came to play, You seemed to be okay.
A Smile is a Wonderful Gift
A smile costs nothing, But is an easy way to show loving, A beautiful handout, To take away doubt.
Before I Go, Before You Go.
You see a wrinkled 102 year old, Balanced on the edge of a knife, Waiting for a puff of wind, To send me crashing from this life.
Pink Pyjama Party?
Now what would you think, Of a party all pink, With pink iguanas, Dressed in pink pyjamas.
A Dolphin's Dreams
My dreams although short, Some, I can report: Riding on a wave, Being rather brave,
Paul the Octopus and his World Cup Succe...
A common octopus called Paul, Became famous in the world of football, When he managed to guess, Team Germany's success,
The Zonkey and the Grolar Bear
'Please don't eat me, ' Said the Zonkey, To the Grolar Bear, 'I'm far too rare.
A World Without Plastic
It would be fantastic, If we stopped using plastic, And eased the world's pain, With a healthy food chain.
The Lament of a Nosy Leech
Oh Daniela Liverani, You took care of me, From the moment I swam, Up your nose in Vietnam.
The Tortoise and the Hare Race Again
The tortoise watched some field mice play, One beautiful sunny summer's day, When who should fix him with a stare, Than his old race partner, the hare.
The best way to live, Is to try to give. Leave behind your greed, To truly succeed.
A fox in Leeds with unusual needs.
You might say I'm an unusual fox, As I love the perfume of mouldy socks. I wander through gardens hoping to seize, Shoes that smell of cheese.
A Beaver's Bank
Please believe this story is true, Of a beaver that used money as glue. It happened in 2004, When two robbers broke the law,
Lambs Queue For A Funny Sort Of Ewe
I'm a Springer Spaniel called Jess, And I know how to impress. A milk bottle in my jaws, Brings rounds of applause.

Koko's poem for Robin Williams
How I wish you'd let me know,
Before you decided to go.
When you came to play,
You seemed to be okay.
I, a gorilla with thick fur,
And you, practically a sir.
Your heart was so warm,
Friendship took me like a storm.
I'll never forget that silly grin,
That made me feel we were kin.
How could I have missed your pain?
I saw no sign of hidden rain.
Over your darkest gloom,
You wore a glowing costume.
If only I had seen your plight,
And filled your black world with light.
How did you come to forget,
Our funny little duet?
