Norbert’s Ears

By Tony Frost and Reuben Ramsay

Just why Norbert’s left ear
Is an elongate form
Is a thing only known to his mother.
But the strange fact remains
That his left and right ears
Are quite differently shaped to each other.

For the right one is round
And so wondrously huge
That it flaps when the wind’s blowing free.
But his left ear is long
And it’s narrow and strong,
So it’s useful for stirring his tea.
