What's that up there?
Beyond that tree!
That thing up floating high,
am I crazy or do you see!

Is it a bird perhaps a plane?
Here it comes over the beck.
 What could it be 
It has a huge, spotty neck.

Oh I know what it is, 
It's floating toward the moon.
It's a giraffe from Africa,
And it's trapped in a balloon!

GIRAFFE - ABLE. By Stantey Cooper.

Giraffe are so giraffe-able
With legs and necks quite laughable
They peer down at us from way up high
With haughty heads above the sky

The long and short of it, we human bean
Hereditarily lack giraffe-able genes
Genealogy keep us comparatively small
So, happily , we won't grow giraffe-ably tall

But basketball pros, those tall human. beans
Exceptionally inherited girffe-able genes
Their legs and necks , not at all laughable
Have made them all rich yet not too. giraffe-able

ELETELPHONY By Laura Richards.

Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant -
No! No! I mean an elephant
Who tried to use the telephone -
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I've get it right.)

How it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephone;
The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee-
(I fear I'd better drop the song
Of elephop and telephone!)
