Wonder doesn't rhyme with ponder.
Yonder rhymes with ponder.
Wander rhymes with both of them,
But not gander.
Gander rhymes with slander, blander, brander, dander, Evander, lander and even candour,
And almost with panda, but not quite.
Panda rhymes with oranda.
My friend Amanda had an oranda,
But not a panda.
She wanted one, but they're difficult to get hold of,
Being as they are confined to the Chinese provinces of Shaanxi, Sichuan and Gansu, none of which rhyme with anything.
They also belong to the People's Republic of China,
Who won't give you one unless you're a country.
And Amanda isn't one of those.
This is only the giant ones, of course.
Red pandas are a different kettle of fish.

I know this is rubbish, by the way. I just feel it's important for everyone to know how silly I am.
