Stephen Katona Poems
The Zonkey and the Grolar Bear
'Please don't eat me, ' Said the Zonkey, To the Grolar Bear, 'I'm far too rare.
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 Dolphin's Dreams
My dreams although short, Some, I can report: Riding on a wave, Being rather brave,
A World Without Plastic
It would be fantastic, If we stopped using plastic, And eased the world's pain, With a healthy food chain.
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.
The Bravest Animal I Know.
Like the easily startled deer, A horse is prone to fear. Millennia of being prey, Has built an instinct to run away.
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.
Spider in my pencil case -new-
From a group of boys, Came excited jabbering noise. In the corner of the playground, There was something they had found.
Pink Pyjama Party?
Now what would you think, Of a party all pink, With pink iguanas, Dressed in pink pyjamas.
Hansel and Gretel
The real Hansel and Gretel story, Is far less gory. True, their father cut wood, But no more than he should,
Please see your bright future -new-
I know you feel so much pain, That it feels like there's no more to gain, By staying in a life, Surrounded by stress and strife.
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.
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,
A Horseshoe Rescue
This is the story of Karyn Gitsham, Who found herself in a jam, When her spaniel called Ramsey, Chased seagulls to make him happy,

The Zonkey and the Grolar Bear
'Please don't eat me, '
Said the Zonkey,
To the Grolar Bear,
'I'm far too rare.
Just like you,
I'm an unusual brew.
Even a donkey,
Looks at me,
A little queerly.
We could be best chums,
And play bongo drums.'
'I'll not disagree, '
Said the Bear to the Zonkey,
'It's just that I'm so hungry! '
'You can't catch me, '
Cried the Zonkey,
'You never will, '
As he sped down the hill.
The Grolar Bear gave pursuit,
Choosing the most direct route,
Hoping for a casserole,
But fell into a muddy hole.
Stuck fast in the sludge, ...
