Irish Giraffe - Poem by Ima Ryma

One giraffe says to the other,
'Happy St. Paddy's Day to you.'
'I come from an Irish mother, '
'Bless her heart at the Dublin Zoo.'
'She comes from the Irish wee folk.'
'Don't ask about me pot o gold.'
Could this story be just a joke?
Giraffes tell tall tales, truth be told.
The other giraffe remains still.
No reason to stick out one's neck.
There be so many toasts to fill.
The world be Irish - what the heck!

'Twould be quite a phenomenon,
Be a giraffe a leprechaun!
