Extract: J'ai mangé un oeuf,
Deux langues de boeuf,
Trois rôts de mouton,
Quatre gros jambons,
Cinq rognons de veau,
Six couples d'oiseaux,

This is a poem used in Primary classes in France.
It is very nice for reading aloud
and fir demonstrating the ease and strength of a list poem

it could be the basis for another list poem
about something contrasting - a princess, a film star, a dancer
or something similar - a monster robot?
