A clerk said, 'Next in line - this way.'
A dog spoke up, 'I guess I am.'
'What can we do for you today? '
'I want to send a telegram.'
A happy hatching has occurred,
An Inca tern chick comes brand new.
The species, an endangered bird,
Can be seen at Lincoln Park Zoo.
Growing up, all I had was Dad.
He was my best friend, come what may.
At times, I cried when I was sad.
Dad gently wiped my tears away.
It does be said that money is
The root of all evil and so
Money is behind all war biz.
Off to war human greed does go.
My parents both age eighty two
Within the same week passed away.
To help my grieving I did do
A painting on a sunny day
A grain of sand gets stuck in me,
Causing me irritation - damn!
And so does respond my body
To give some relief to this clam.
I'd died and gone to heaven high.
The shock had not worn off me yet.
What choice was there but to comply?
I sure could use a cigarette.
Whiskers, whiskers - I got a bunch,
As any harbor seal has got.
Whiskers help us to find some lunch -
Seafood, fish and crabs and whatnot,
I am a cute red panda who
The humans love to see this 'red'
Here at home in Lincoln Park Zoo.
Lots of 'oohs' and 'aahs' be said
