Shel Silverstein




Wild Boar 

If you tell me the wild boar
Has twenty teeth, I’ll say, “Why shore.”
Or say that he has thirty-three,
That number’s quite all right with me.
Or scream that he has ninety-nine,
I’ll never say that you are lyin’.
For the number of teeth
In a wild boar’s mouth
Is a subject I’m glad
I now nothing abouth.
