Forty Purple Porpoises

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Forty purple porpoises
on forty silver sleds
went flying by with forty
flaming rockets on their heads.

As forty horses bungie-jumped
from forty jumbo jets,
some forty mice on dirt bikes
raced with forty marmosets.

Then forty hippopotami
on forty snowmobiles
went screaming down a moutainside
with forty skiing seals.

And forty whales on skateboards
crashed in forty hockey rinks.
Yes, that’s the dream I dreamed last night
while catching forty winks.
