My Giraffe Just Left for the Zoo
My giraffe just left for the zoo, After asking, "Do you want to come too?" But alas, I declined; No bus fare could I find, Among the "under couch cushions" goo. The giraffe was meeting a goat, Who was going to the zoo by boat. He'd planned to take the bus, But the driver kicked up a fuss: "You don't ride the bus with no coat." Together they paid at the gate. (The goat asked to pay the kid's rate.) The giraffe paid full price, And bought a lemonade ice, Declaring it well worth the wait. The visitors were much varied in age, With helium balloons all the rage. "I think I'd like one," Said the goat, but before done, He and Giraffe found themselves in a cage. So I headed to the zoo to post bail. (My giraffe had to eat from a pail!) And the goat begged me too, "Get me out of this zoo!" So I did, rather than listen to him wail. They were hungry, so home to dinner we'd go. The goat rolled his eyes -- "I don't like ham, though!" "Next week," mused the giraffe, With a wink and a laugh, "I think we should go to Lambeau."
