NOAH'S ARK

a stonnet (a sonnet that tells a well-known story)

Back to Main Stonnets Index

I figured he was borderline insane,

I liked to visit every day to gloat,

for seven stinking years we'd had no rain -

so, why the hell would Noah build a boat?

 

I watched them work, the whole damn family,

to build what Noah liked to call "The Ark"

though we're a hundred miles from the sea,

that didn't stop them working - dawn till dark!

 

Then one day it was finished - what a sight!

An ocean-going ship on desert beach,

he must have got the animals at night,

I thought it quite amazing - two of each!

 

It flooded - history will tell you that,

and me? I swam till I reached Ararat!
