Funny Poem a Day: On the Benefits of Genetic Engineering, by John Rice

I had a little break there from posting, sorry about that – book to get ready to send off! It’s nearly done, now. Today’s poem is by John Rice – there are two children’s poets called John Rice and both are excellent. It’s this John Rice today! John has sent a poem about a genetically-engineered octopus that is now an octopussy. I can reveal that Lola would not ever want any animal in the house that resembles a cat whatsoever. She was deeply jealous of our cat, Milla, shown in the picture above. She tolerated her. If I showed any love at all for Milla, Lola’s face was a picture of absolute outrage. Thank you for the poem, John!

 

On the Benefits of Genetic Engineering

I want an octo-pussy cat:
I know that it won’t purr
But at least I’m not allergic
To octo-pussy fur.

Joke:

What did the octopus say to his girlfriend when he proposed?
