Eek, You Reek!
Poems about Animals That Stink, Stank, Stunk
Eek, you reek,
You make a funk.
Where you have been
Things stink, stank, stunk.
You’ve left a path,
A swath of smell,
You did it very well.
Readers will be delighted by the malodorous melodies of poems calling out the different pungent attributes of a full cast of foul-smelling creatures.
