Whose Zoo of Hotties and Naughties

helen the hippo

AnElephantCant really argue about it
Most animals are prettier than he
Zebras giraffes and hosses
Even rhinoceroses
And an annoyingly cute chimpanzee

Folk like squirrels though they eat all the peanuts
And young Bambis with their long wobbly legs
And funny meerkats
And stumpy wombats
And wee turtles crawling out of their eggs

AnElephantCant spell hippomapotamerus
But its pups make the girls all go awww
Everybody loves duckies
And the chicks of cluck-cluckies
And kittens and black Labradors

He hopes that later he won’t see an alligator
Or in a while a fierce crocodile
He doesn’t mind ox or hawks
Or his friend Phil the Fox
Whose doodles make AnElephant smile

People like lions cos they’re real cool and majestic
And penguins though they walk dead funny
Princesses kiss frogs
Ladies knit with hedgehogs
From his hat AnElephant pulls a fluffy white bunny

What’s so great about those bouncy wallabies
Or koala bears or black and white pandas
Or coyotes that howl
Or hoot tooting owls
Although probably nobody really admires salamanders

There are websites for those who love Great Whites
Yes sharkophiles it’s scary go figure
People like goldfish in tanks
And meeces – no thanks!
And tiger cubs until they get bigger

And there are also all sorts of wee birdies
Like robins and budgies and starlings
But with his little-calf-lost smile
And his trunk prehensile
AnElephant still thinks he’s a bit of a darling

    Meme must confess she’s been to the zoo
    Passions had quite a few

    Never could resist when an rhino insists
    Don’t knock it neither could you

    She would give a squeal oh what a thrill
    For a crocs got real sex appeal

    Fond of snakes and spiders, the love bite of bugs
    But AnElephantCant still gives the best hugs

    I love elephants and I would like to have an elephant skin, I don’t mean as wrinkly as that but as thick as that. 🙂 I have a freind she loves elephants so much I give every time for her birthday or Christmas an elephant related preesent. It is fun to find elephant things, and there are plenty there too! Wishing you an elephantastic day!

    • AnElephantCant tell Ute how happy he is
      That once again his wee blog she has graced
      And though she’s clearly mad
      He really is glad
      That she has a friend with such impeccable taste

  4. Anelephant is such a dear
    We can count on his constant good cheer
    He may visit the zoo
    And like all that he views
    But we know he’s the best chanticleer!

    While I’m not so great at putting together a wee rhyme for my favorite Elephant…I can most definitely say he is not only a darling…but absolutively the bestest!!

    I once had a blogging friend, Meme
    Who said that you often did dream
    Of folks coming calling
    Their likes’ button stalling
    On each of your poetic schemes.

    Happy Holidays, Marsha Lee 🙂

    An elephantcan’t possibly deny it
    That he is an incredibly smart wit,
    His rhyming is awesome
    though he plays like a possum
    We all know that he is a big hit!

    AnElephant gives good of all the creatures
    But all are unique with their features
    I hope this does not cause a rant
    But that includes AnElephant
