Zoo Fruit Feeding Time Poem by C Richard Miles

Zoo Fruit Feeding Time

Rating: 2.6


At the zoo's fruit feeding time:
An ape ate a grape, .
A porcupine ate a lime,
A skate ate a date,

A ferret ate a cherry,
A baboon ate a prune,
A bear ate a pear,
An opossum ate a plum,

A wolverine ate a tangerine.
An armadillo ate a tamarillo,
A bunny rabbit ate a pomegranate,
A gorilla ate vanilla,

A pig ate a fig,
A newt ate a grapefruit,
A lynx ate quince,
A wombat ate a kumquat,

A macaw ate a pawpaw,
An eland ate a lemon,
A llama ate a guava,
An elephant ate a melon,

A tamarin ate a mandarin,
A puma ate a satsuma,
A parrot ate an apricot,
A piranha ate a banana,

Some cattle ate apples,
A mongoose ate mangos,
Some leeches ate peaches,
Some buffalos ate pomelos.

But what seemed strange
At the zoo's fruit feeding time:
No-one ate an orange
Since an orange didn't rhyme!
