Elevated Laughter

I stood on the steps 
To look at a Girraffe 
Enormous eyelashes 
Soon caused me to laugh 

She seemed some what offended
As She batted her eyes
She never had this affect
On any other guys

The oxygen must be thin
All of a sudden she could talk
She said if I kept laughing
She would turn around and walk

If any one was funny
She said it had to be me
A neck so short an scrawny 
must make it really hard to see

She took her very long tongue
Started licking my ear
She said she'd never seen one
That was so small and so dear

I was  a little surprised
As I took a short step back
I tripped and fell through the air
Then I landed with a wack

She could not help herself
It's her that had the last laugh
As for the butt bruised me
I seen a laughing Girraffe 

She said so long shorty
I'm more into tall guys
She turned and away
As I yelled my goodbyes

    Well...I'll be....I NEVER expected to read something like this from you! But must say....the unpredictable is always enchanting...Must add...giraffes do a great job of batting their eyelashes...we gals could take a tip or two. Great write!
