Cottleston Pie -- A A Milne

this week's theme: poems written by fictional characters - metapoets, if
you will.
(Poem #91) Cottleston Pie
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
A fly can't bird, but a bird can fly.
Ask me a riddle and I reply
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie.

Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
Why does a chicken? I don't know why.
Ask me a riddle and I reply
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie.

Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
A fish can't whistle and neither can I.
Ask me a riddle and I reply
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie.
-- A A Milne
This charming little snippet of verse was written by one of my favourite
characters, a Bear of Very Little Brain, Winne-the-Pooh. I remember
having been fascinated by the surrealism of the 6th line from my
childhood days, long ago when all the world and time was young...

... I continue to be fascinated by it :-)

As for what sort of beast a Cottleston Pie is, a search of the Web
revealed only the following URL:

Of course, at any minute an enterprising Pooh fan could start a small business of making and selling Cottleston Pie. Surely if made with sufficient honey it would please those with a Sweet nature.
Come on, Pooh lovers, someone please take the initiative here.
