The Floating Zoo
Reader Star Rating:
I wish I could have been around,
when Noah's Ark was ocean bound,
so many creatures in his sight,
for forty days and forty nights.
To see each animal up close,
and feel their different coloured coats,
to have them all within my reach,
and know that there's a pair of each!
The lions, tigers and the goats,
how could the Ark have stayed afloat?
the elephants and cockatoos,
all in one place, just like the zoo.
The leopards with their skin of spots,
might see the world in polka-dot,
and zebras with their coat of stripes,
would they see things in black and white?
The cute koalas, I believe,
would munch on eucalyptus leaves,
while monkeys with their silly grins,
could toss around banana skins!
Flamingos dressed in pretty pink,
would make a meal of shrimp I think,
and myna birds would clearly speak,
while showing off their coloured beaks.
Sometimes I wish I could've been,
upon that Ark a 'way back when,
and played with them, both big and small,
not having to pretend at all!
