I Am Gibbon - Lincoln Park Zoo
'Mom, tell me again who am I? '
'You are a white cheeked gibbon boy, '
'Here at Lincoln Park Zoo is why'
'You'll have a good life and enjoy, '
'What most our species do not'
'Outside a zoo, endangered be.'
'But here a family you've got, '
'And you will grow with Dad and me, '
'And with humans who really care'
'That you do grow up safe and well.'
'So few of us, so we do share'
'With other zoos where we do dwell.'
'One day at a zoo, near or far, '
'You'll tell your children who they are.'
