HULLABALOO at the ZOO

A funny animal poem with lots of rhyming. Great for kids.

A hullabaloo once ensued at Jerusalem zoo -

the head keeper's son had made fun of the new kangaroo

who cried - so a wide-eyed old owl then advised him to sue,

the damages bill would be millions (or so said the gnu.)

 

A chimp with a limp simpered in "I'm the lawyer" he said,

the silly old billy goat judge simply nodded his head,

a dozen old bison were chosen as jury instead,

with help from a kelpie who claimed he was whelped in a bed!

 

The gavel came down and a brown bear was really distraught,

confessed that he'd messed with a test and deserved to be caught,

the keeper was weeping - his cheating was beaten for naught,

a bevy of evidence served up the verdict roo sought.

 

The wallabies hollered hooray at the new guilty plea,

the judge only budged with a nudge from an old manatee,

his verdict was heard: he concurred with the smart chimpanzee,

"All beasts must be free," he decreed, "and immediately!"

 

The meerkats all cheered and then jeered at the reindeer who ran,

at the zoo eagles flew and the pumas applauded the plan,

the jungle had won and they'd all put one over the Man,

the monkeys got drunk and the skunk sent a card to Tarzan.

 

The lions were trying to fry up a victory feast,

as camels and mammals came in from the south and northeast,

a speech was unleashed by a silly old buffalo priest,

I'm guessing his lesson was: "Never make fun of a beast!"
