A silly poem for kids and adults and kidults.
I’ve got a new job,
I’m a keeper,
Down at the local zoo
And now, I’ve got to feed the animals,
But I don’t know what to do.
So I went down the supermarket
And did a big food shop
And bought victuals for the animals,
And this is what they got.
The alligaterz had potaterz,
The yeti had spaghetti.
The pirhanas seemed partial to bananas
And so were the lamas,
But when I had no more bananas,
I fed the lamas to the pirhanas.
The two-toed sloth had a bowl of Scotch broth
(Because he’s a sloth from Arbroath)
I gave the chimpanzees some toasted cheese
The Orangutangs had meringues.
The coypu had toffu
The elephants had buns
The millipede had bacon and eggs
But he couldn’t hold his knife and fork,
Because he’s got so many legs
As for the rhinoceros
They all had a bowl of sugar puffs.
