The lizard that jumped from the high iroko tree to the ground said he would praise himself if no one else did.

1 water dragon

Lizard, lizard on the wall.

I don’t mind spiders, I don’t mind bugs,
I can coexist in peace with worms and slugs.
What I can’t stand, if anything at all..
Are lizards…  They make my skin crawl!

Right through summer, seen around,
Yellow, slimy, makin’ a ‘ tuk-tuk’  sound,
They get to me…big or small,
And then to spot a lizard on my wall!

An eye on the computer…I can’t think,
An eye on the lizard, I can’t  blink,
My eyes are frozen, my head in a spin,
How in the world could it get in.

 

Lizard, lizard on the wall., a poem by Nishu Mathur, India
