We’re all going to the zoo today
Excitement adorns us in a brand new way.
Lions, Tigers, Seals, and giraffes
Penguins,snakes all here today.
Children laughing at the Lions roar
as the Polar bear dives in for fish
Monkeys playing on old chewed ropes
as the peacocks eat out of a dish'
Magical feeling of excitement dawns
as we are taken on a bus ride
the hypos roll in mudded fields
as families of animals hide.
Caged but happy the animlas feed
zoo keepers standing by
some birds walking fast on the ground
whilst others take off and fly.
Cars being bombarded with little Monkeys
curious about the machine
babys so small they hardly move
but the adults are overly keen.
The river trip is a must for all
the seals swim as fast as the boat
looking for scraps from the zoo keeper
guzzling fish down their throat.
On the little Island alligators roam
watching through their cold green eyes
huge but fast mammals in control
looking for a quick surpise.
On the way back the river is alive
with many a sight to see
the kids gone quiet, all gobsmacked
as they wtach them swimming free.
The day has ended much action seen
at our local zoo
plenty to talk about at school on Monday
a great day had by me and you :)
One of the happy memories of my childhood was visiting Edinburgh zoo, not far from were we lived this was excitement at its highest, spending hours going round all the animal enclosures and further afield made it a great day, with the famous Penguins parade, this was superb,my older sisters always took us to the zoo and we also had a picnic, so what better to share for family Friday than a happy childhood family memory.
