Kwan - Lincoln Park Zoo - Poem by Ima Ryma
I am Kwan. I am patriarch
Of my gorilla family.
Home is the Zoo in Lincoln Park,
With all the females and male me.
It is a never ending task
Trying to show the wives the ways.
If they're unsure, I urge them ask,
Cuz we have daughters we must raise.
Nayembi and Patty know Dad
Is always on hand to point out
If they've been good, if they've been bad.
And they're both mostly good, no doubt!
Compared to the young human crowd,
My daughters make this papa proud.
