Giraffe
Jacopo Ligozzi – Barbary Moor with Giraffe, c. 1580.

 

The Big Hippopotamus
There once was a big hippopotamus
Who nibbled grass from a lake’s bottomus
He once found there a snail
Who looked up and paled
And cried, “Don’t eat me; I taste like your snotimus!”

The Nudist Pair
There once was a nudist pair
Who ran naked in the open air
They loved to run slow
Along a rippling river that flowed
But they ran faster when chased by a bear!

The Laughing Giraffe
There once was a joking giraffe
Who loved nothing better than to have a good laugh
He stuck his long tongue in the ear of his friend
And then he tried to pretend
That he was just giving a bath!

Who nibbled grass from a lake’s bottomus
He once found there a snail
Who looked up and paled
And cried, “Please don’t eat me, I will taste like your snotimus!”

Who ran naked in the open air
They loved to run slow
Along a rippling river that flowed
But they ran faster when chased by a bear!

There once was a humorous giraffe
Who loved nothing better than to have a good laugh
He stuck his long tongue in the ear of his friend
And then he tried to pretend
That he was just giving a bath!

David Neal – After the Hunt, 1870.

 

The Dog and the Cat
There once was a dog and a cat
Who lived in the very same flat
To friendship they were amenable
A relationship that proved tenable
And together they grew happy and fat!

The Eagle and the Bear
There once was an eagle and bear
Who were an inseparable pair
The bear was a beast in the east
And the eagle would join in the feast
Whenever there was a carcass to share.

The Cat and the Mouse
There once was a cat and a mouse
Who lived in the very same house
They were both unprejudiced
And after much talking they kissed
Now they are each other’s spouse!

The Golden Bear
There once was a bear made of gold
Who lived amongst the snow and the cold
Each time he stepped the gold shone
Like a king’s royal throne
This rare bear was a fine sight to behold!

The Pious Moralist
There once was a pious moralist
Who condemned even the most virtuous kiss
She screamed at the children who played
And castigated her maid
Now when she dies she’s one no one will miss!

Killing Time
There once was a man with a skill:
Everything he touched he would kill
So when he put his thumb on a clock
It became as dead as a rock
And thus he made Time stand still!
