Nino the Donkey / by Joseph Castorino


Nino the Donkey thought

   he was much better than all,

His diamond-studded saddle

   made him feel rather tall,

His pride did nothing but fill him

   with the most bitter gall.


Nino should focus so much

   more on his good deeds,

Instead of wearing the most

   fashionable fancy tweeds,

He would be better off thinking

   about other people’s needs.
