The Underwater Wibbles

Today we would like to share with you a poem that will be featured in our upcoming “Stuff and Nonsense” concert! This poem, by Jack Prelutsky, is all about some funny little creatures that live underwater and simply love cheese! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do 🙂

The Underwater Wibbles by Jack Prelutsky

The Underwater Wibbles
dine exclusively on cheese,
they keep it in containers
that they bind about their knees,
they often chew on Cheddar
which they slice into a dish,
and gorge on Gorgonzola
to the wonder of the fish.

The Underwater Wibbles
wiggle blithely through the sea,
munching merrily on Muenster,
grated Feta, bits of Brie,
passing porpoises seem puzzled,
stolid octopuses stare,
as the Wibbles nibble Gouda,
Provolone, Camembert.

The Underwater Wibbles frolic gaily off the coast,
eating melted Mozzarella
served on soggy crusts of toast,
Wibbles gobble Appenzeller
as they execute their dives,
Oh, the Underwater Wibbles,
live extraordinary lives.
