I wrote this poem in lockdown. It is funny and I guess being lockdown things comes in your head. This is one of them.

Who saw the man
Sitting on the ground?
I said the child,
But who was around.

Who saw the bird cage
Hanging up high?
I said the rabbit,
Hop hopping along.

Who saw the horse
Running through the field?
I said the chicken,
Only clucking indeed.

Who saw the fish
Swimming in the dish?
I said the fly,
The cat came by.

Who saw the rain
Running along the pane?
I said the bee,
Only I did see.
