Camels can spit
Camels are grumpy
Look at their dress - you'll find
Camels are frumpy

Camels can kick
Camels are humpy
Some things they're not - e.g.
Camels aren't dumpy

Camels don't hop
Camels aren't jumpy
They have long, slender legs, so
Camels aren't stumpy

Camels don't sing
Camels aren't scrumpy
And, except once in a while
Camels aren't slumpy

Camels are big.
Camels are lumpy.
Go for a ride - you'll find
Camels are bumpy


Author's Note:

verse order changed (the now final verse was the first but it makes more sense to have it at the end I think to give some sort of climax)

Cute! I can see this as an excerpt of an illustrated children's book. And you certainly used an umpty of umpy words :)

Cute and absolutely entertaining, even for an adult, so I can only imagine how much a kiddo would love this!
