Only Rabbits and Guinea Pigs? Don't Make Me Laugh.
But what about Zebras and Bison
And fings wot you find in the Zoo?
Like Hippopotamuses… Hippos!!
And Walrus, and Eland and Gnu
And don’t forget Lions and Tigers
And things that you find in a hutch,
Like very small Rhinoceroses
Or very large Plankton and such.
And also remember the Badgers
Some say they can’t get enough,
A Dog down in Norbury Court Road says
She can’t do without “ALPHA DELUXE” stuff
There isn’t an animal I know
Who turns up his beak, nose or snout,
When offered the old “ALPHA HERBAL”
They know what good food’s all about!
So when you go down to the Chip Shop
For a take away cod or a plaice.
Or you wander into Kentucky
Do you see a smile on each face?
More Lesbians to the square foot than in most venues.
It’s the same down the Taj Mahal, Streatham,
And the Pink Lotus Garden in Penge,
The Turkish Kebab Shop in Chelsea
“Ye Olde Druid Tea Shoppe”, Stonehenge
For animals aren’t quite like humans
‘Cos your human occasionally nips
Into Takeaway shops in the High Street
For Burgers, or Curries or Chips
You never see animals queuing
For Junk Food; and it’s not ‘cos they’re lazy
I’ve seen them in well behaved order,
Shopping at “Animal Crazy”.
Little furry, cuddly animals.
So it’s not just your Rabbit, and Guinea,
(Your Guinea Pig, I emphasise),
It’s your Aardvark and Camelopard
(Giraffe, with its head in the skies).
The Earthworm, the Rat and the Peacock,
The Peahen, the Moose and the Rail,
(But not as you thought a choc mousse, dear)
An Elephant, Amoeba and Snail.
The very rare Norbury Mudhound,
And almost the last but not least,
The Bactrian Camel and the Otter.
The less than rare Grey Wildebeest.
All love Alpha Herbal Deluxe Feed
Whether Vertebrate, Insect or Other;
The whole of the Animal Kingdom,
Each Animalian Sister and Brother.
Another small, furry, cuddly animal... or maybe not.
Are you are great Animal Lover?
If you are great Animal Lovers, you may be interested in some in-depth articles concerning our little feathered, furred and scaled chums (Yes! I know, I left some out).
These articles may be found at Norbury Mudhounds
Or if, perhaps you are interested in Ecology, there is a most interesting article concerning the life and habitat of several animals. including the Gnu or Wildebeest at Attracting the Opposite Sex
Perhaps your interests in animals are more esoteric. You would appreciate the Poem Ovis Aries, I Love You
