Great Zoo Poems - Poem by Elsie Skelton
This creature can be pleasant, yet exhausting.
It will bound around gaily, but soon tire and take a restful interlude.
It brings an intelligible smile to all witness.
Summer's behavior depends entirely on it's place of origin,
And has a tendency to be unreliable.
This is a prodigious creature.
There are many different breeds of this species,
And not all appeal to everyone.
However, it is often substantially favorable - whatever the breed.
Music's mood can change at any time, so don't be startled.
This creature is a very mysterious cross-breed,
It's exact origins, nobody is certain of.
Watch it as it walks slowly around it's confinement, it's head hung,
Making hardly any noise but a few sighs and moans.
Be wary, as the slightest movement can trigger it's anger.
