My Zoo

    “My Zoo,” Friend, Sept. 2005, 17

    My Zoo

    I’d like to have a monkey

    And two white mice;

    A roomful of elephants

    Would be rather nice.

    But while I am waiting

    To capture some of these,

    I have a little jar

    Full of fresh green leaves.

    There a cricket, a beetle,

    And a small black bug

    Will stay a day or two

    All happy and snug!
