A Frican Gazelle - Poem by Hairy Wombat

Well, my kids, in first grade learn to read
we are practicing daily, indeed.
Said boy John I have took
a good look at the book
it's a zoobook, that much is agreed.

Dearest Johnny, it's taken not took
have a peek and another good look,
at the book and then say
what you see, yes you may
it's the book of the city Tobruk.

Oh, I see, Miss, a frickin Gazelle
they can run like the bat straight from Hell.
Watch the language young lad
or your teacher be mad
please explain lest you're caught by the bell.

It says lions will chase them all day,
which is probably, maybe okay.
Yes, A-frican Gazelle
is my answer, pray tell
please explain now the teacher's dismay.
