For this week’s limerick challenge my sons asked me to write about a cheetah. This was distinctly easier than last week because there are far more rhymes for ‘cheetah’ than for ‘elephant‘! Even so – given I’d promised myself I’d avoid writing about bottoms, farts and snot this week – it wasn’t entirely straightforward.
We went through a few versions but the boys were pleased with this one:
A terribly thirsty young cheetah
Drank raspberry juice by the litre
Because she drank SO much
She smelt of fresh doughnuts
And all those nearby tried to eat her.
My four-year-old drew the picture at the top (I don’t know why the cheetah has stripy ears but I like them!) and my six-year-old drew the one below.
I really fancy a doughnut now…
