The Carcajou and the Kincajou

(1980)

In "The Carcajou and the Kincajou," Frank Lewin sets a text of Ogden Nash, the second song in his song cycle A Musical Nashery.

The Carcajou and the Kincajou
by Ogden Nash


They tell me of a distant zoo
Where a carcajou met a kincajou.
Full soon to savage blows they came
From laughing at each other's name.


The agile ajous fought till dark.
And carc slew kinc and kinc slew carc.
And beside the conquered kincajou
Lay the carcass of the carcajou.
