I had tea
    with a sea lion
    from Neptune;
He had shiny white tusks
    and beautiful fur;
All the while we ate,
    he hummed a tune,
and every now and then
    he let out a soft purr.

He was very tired,
     because he'd travelled from afar,
but nonetheless,
     he still enjoyed the tea;
we had bread and cakes
     and jam (one whole jar!)
and sausages and clam
     and other things from the sea.

Of course we had seafood;
     because he's a sea lion,
To tell you the truth,
     he doesn't much fancy sweets
What he really prefers
     is pizza and all things Italian.
But every once in a while,
     he doesn't mind some treats.

Our friend,
     the friendly crab
     from the well
     behind the neighbour's house
Couldn't make it
     because the rope for the well's bucket
     was broken
And I couldn't invite
     my best friend's mouse
Because the sea lion
     would have eaten him,
     and so the tea would have ended
     before a word could be spoken.

The tea was quite delicious.
This is about having tea with a sea lion.

Fantastic nonsense.

Glad you do. I like nonsense poetry. That and abstract poetry. Actually, I like poetry in general. Perhaps I should join Poppy's Poetry Club~

Thank you! Glad you liked it =). That just made my day!

I was so afraid I wasn't going to be able to write any poetry today, but then I just suddenly had this idea. I had tea with my family just now, and I complained to my mother "Mummy, I haven't written anything today!" And she simply said "Write about having tea"

How simple things turn out to be sometimes.
