MY SON'S ZOO EXPERIENCE

It’s Zoo Lover’s Day!
Go and watch the monkeys play.

Be sure to see the giraffes,
they make me laugh.

But for my son,
giraffes are no fun

DJ was three or four,
his exact age, I’m unsure.

But he was young,
when a giraffe wrapped its tongue,

around his ice cream cone.
Who could have known,

a giraffe would bend down
and make my son frown!

DJ did scream,
the giraffe stole my ice cream!

I guess it was DJ’s fate,
I thought it was great.

For my son it was grief,
caused by a long-necked thief!

He did recover,
And became a zoo lover.

But he steers clear
Of the giraffes he fears!


A funny video of kids and zoo animals, enjoy!

And the day would not be complete without some dancing monkeys!

@merehealthier - very nice post about visiting the zoo. I always enjoyed my time there, and will definitely go again once the weather is nice. Good post!

I hope you enjoy your trip to the zoo. It is a wonderful way to spend a day when the weather is nice.

A truly comical story told in the poem. Glad to hear that your son survived his "ordeal" and now enjoys a visit to the zoo.

Yes, we still joke about it today. When he was in high school he wrote a story about giraffes being evil.
