My father’s donkey’s rather lame

    And stumbles over stones

But when Dad leaves him in the field

    He’s unhappy and he groans.


A braying donkey’s not a sound

    The neighbours like to hear.

It tends to get upon their nerves,

    And is deafening to the ear.


So the donkey follows Dad around

    Whilst hobbling all the way,

But a wonky donkey’s better than

    The one who sadly brays.
