  • The Sound Collector: by Roger McGough
  • The Dentist and the Crocodile: by Roald Dahl

The Sound Collector:

A stranger called this morning Dressed all in black and grey
Put every sound into a bag And carried them away
The whistling of the kettle The turning of the lock
The purring of the kitten The ticking of the clock

The Dentist and the Crocodile:

The crocodile, with cunning smile, sat in the dentist’s chair.
He said, ‘Right here and everywhere my teeth require repair.’
The dentist’s face was turning white. He quivered, quaked and shook.
He muttered, ‘I suppose I’m going to have to take a look.’
