Happy is the Toad
Not Squashed on the Road.
Happy is the white Rabbit
Not trapped in some Cabinet.
Happy is a desert Camel
Not covered with Enamel.
Happy is a wagging Dog
Not lost in some misty Fog.
Happy is a Giraffes's neck
Not caught in some Lariat.
Happy is a Blue Whale
Not drowned inside a pail.
Happy is a Siamese Cat
Not stuck inside a Derby Hat.
Happy is the Gila monster
Not upon a roller Coaster.
Felicitous is an Elephant
Not murdered by a safari hunt.
Happy is the Fly
Not caught in a Lie.
