I would not engage the wombat / In any form of mortal combat


Words on a page. Battery Point (walking to work). June 2013.

The best thing about reading books while walking is reading books. And walking.

The Wombat, Ogden Nash

The wombat lives across the seas,
Among the far Antipodes.
He may exist on nuts and berries,
Or then again, on missionaries;
His distant habitat precludes
Conclusive knowledge of his moods,
But I would not engage the wombat
In any form of mortal combat.
