Llama Drama - Poem by s.zaynab kamoonpuri

This flesh 'n' blood cousin of the ship 'o' the desert
here is given that funky punky, stylish haircut?
Could it be optical illusion or screen manipulation
causing him to grin in mock jubilation?

And ain't he gonna toss those bangs
like some real groovy llama?
My doesn't he look ready for any
showbiz dromedary drama?

Ah yes, he does look handsome, do come have a view
of this fuzzy, comedy dromedary beau!

Send in the paparazzi, for he's already saying cheese
But he prefers his own kind, send in some lady llamas please.

Hey, like humans, llamas can stick their tongues out
and spit to express displeasure
So keep your distance from angry ones
or you will regret the mismeasure.

It's scientific pseudonym is llama glama
Think of glamour? Ah, spare the poor llama.

The one in the picture is a cool llama teenager
but he's no teeny-bopper, for he's a teetotaller
as no one ever saw him with a bottle of gin or lager!

Topic(s) of this poem: animals

Form: Arabian Sonnet

    Thanks so much Laurie, a picture of llamas inspired me,

    and thanks Bri, yeah many teens are teenyboppers so I'm glad that teenaged llamas or alpacas etc are not lol..
    Glad to give a lil chuckle sometimes...

    i agree with use of 'n', but i'd use o', not 'o'. ;) [i am not grammar expert! ]

    i, also, like/prefer " my kind" , but don't ask what kind i AM! the jury is 'still out'.

    2 - i like alliteration: " dromedary drama" , but:

    " Camelid. Camelids are members of the biological family Camelidae, the only currently living family in the suborder Tylopoda. The extant members of this group are: dromedary camels, Bactrian camels, wild Bactrian camels, llamas, alpacas, vicuñas, and guanacos."

    i esp. enjoy displeasure/mismeasure for the meaning and the rhyme, though i think you've used poetic license rather than the noun: mismeasurement.

    i'm also not sure if photos are all of llamas, or if some, at least, are alpacas. i don't trust all photos found when using Google. (see # 2 comment)

    " but he's no teeny-bopper" ..i don't know why you put this information here.

    :)

    Very funny! I love the way you play with words and let them take you places. Cool pictures too. What made you think of Llamas? Once here in Prague I passed a house that sometimes has exotic animals, and there in the garden stood two llamas! (Report)Reply
