Funny Poem a Day: We Have a Mouse, by Liz Brownlee

Anon. is a funny word, isn’t it? It stands for anonymous, which is the word used to represent a person who doesn’t want their identity known, or for someone whose identity is not known. There are probably more poems by Anon. than by anyone else, but they are not all the same person of course – sometimes the poem has been handed down and repeated and repeated and maybe changed, until no-one knowns who wrote it in the first place. Tomorrow we have a poem by Anon. Today, there is a poem by me which mentions the word.

In the picture today, Lola is trying to be anonymous by being camouflaged on her blanket.

 

We Have a Mouse

 

We think we have a mouse – for it

ate mum’s jam sponge cake bit by bit,

we know he’s been here when he comes

by missing cake and piles of crumbs

but never see him round the house

we think he is anony- mouse!
