Animal School - Poem by Della Perry
I moved to a new house and went to a new school
The Head was a mouse and the Deputy a mule
My form tutor was a rat
The Secretary a dog
The caretaker was a cat and
The dinner ladies were all hogs.
The children were buzzards, a kind of bird
It's not the strangest thing she had heard,
Said Gran in a letter sent through the mail,
But then you see Gran has got a tail!
I know it sounds quite funny and
it may sound strange
But Gran is a monkey,
It happened when she was my age!
I don't know what happened
I don't really care
I'm big and furry
I'm a brown bear!
