The Ginglewhap And The Thomble


Today I saw a Ginglewhap,
And wondered why, oh why,
Do Ginglewhaps run all about,
Whilst Thombles only sigh?

I thought they'd do things just the same,
As they look so much alike.
But you don't see Thombles run at all,
(They prefer to ride their bikes!)

I asked them to explain to me,
Why they behave so different.
But I couldn't grab the Ginglewhap,
And the Thomble shrugged, indifferent!

So I'm really none the wizer,
Why they don't just act the same.
And I suppose they'll never tell me,
But it's fun to watch their games.
