Pierre - Lincoln Park Zoo
I am Francois langur, Pierre,
Born in July of oh thirteen.
Home is the Lincoln Park Zoo, where
So many humans can be seen.
I was bright orange when I was born,
So Aunties could give Mom a break.
I stuck out like the sun in morn,
Hard to give the Aunties the shake.
But now I'm changing color to
Black to blend with the family.
Before you see me, I'll see you.
That's just the way it's meant to be.
I could watch humans all day long.
They are so goofy - am I wrong!
