Happy Birthday, Doktor Fredy! - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Oh no, it isn't Mister Ed
or some unknown old clown
today we celebrate with Fred
we should use cap and gown.

Of all the friends we have on Earth
he's one that stands alone
and on that dark day of his birth
they didn't make a clone.

That's why we need to keep him young
and healthy for some years
today his smart, discerning tongue
may taste a couple beers.

From far away we send to you
best wishes for your day
from all the kids and our zoo
a Hip-Hip-Hip-Hoorah.
