A Ridiculous Look At Animals

Flying bats wearing tiny hats pursued a family of rats who recently arrived to live at a community zoo

the elephants protested and so did a kangaroo

the lions and tigers had their say

the monkey’s were furious all day

the zebras simply didn’t care

the bears didn’t know they were there

the aadvarks put out an alert

and they all hid in the dirt

the exotic birds didn’t have much to say

they were just happy to fly and play

the polar bears didn’t stare

because they were unaware

the hippos bathing in pools

thought the rats were fools

the only ones glad to see the rat family

were the snakes… waiting patiently
