Colobus Cool - Lincoln Park Zoo


Black and white colobus monkey,
In Lincoln Park Zoo I call home.
In Africa my wild kin be,
Eating plants in forests we roam.
Multi chambered tummies digest,
Pooping out loads of seeds that grow
Into the plants that we like best.
The least we can do - doncha know!
Colobus - Greek for thumbless one.
But that's okay, cuz we do cling
Effortlessly in fingered fun,
From tree to tree in life's big swing.

I would do thumbs up for the Zoo,
If I did have thumbs - yes tiz true.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
