At the zoo

Zoo

A poem , written on a visit to Edinburgh zoo, with my nephews and the rest of the family

I went to the zoo today,

Saw a small elephant play.

A Tiger with stripes and great big paws

and a Lion with Mane and great big claws!

but that wasn’t everything i saw

Today

Went to the Zoo today,

Saw a spotted leopard sleeping in a bush

as a black panther hid among the brush

and cubs with their mums in such a rush

Today

I went to the zoo today,

and saw the chimps and monkeys at play

Gorillas on trees, swatting off fleas

and Marmosets hanging off branches by their knees!

Today

I Went to the zoo today,

saw buzzards and other birds of prey

‘gainst grand scottish hills

enjoying their scraps and swoops and spills

as i ate my lunch from a restuaurant grill

today

I went to the zoo today,

and saw other animals play.

Saw a Golden Bear, swinging from a tree,

and Monkeys and Gibbons eating their tea,

(Loads of cheeky Chimpanzees!)

and Penguins underwater – like in the sea

swimming past windows – and looking at me

Today
