The Lama

Ogden Nash
The one-l lama,
He's a priest.
The two-l llama,
He's a beast.
And I will bet
A silk pajama
There isn't any
Three-l lllama.
Why I chose this poem: 

When thinking about favorite poems I tended to think of poems that are melancholy, dark and filled with teen-aged angst.  Now that I'm older I have favorite poets rather than individual poems.  But here is one that I've liked since hearing it so long ago...

I like it because it is light, fun easy to remember and helps with spelling.
