Plight of the Pandas

The panda bear is cute but also shy.
So have you ever stopped to wonder why?

It goes back to that time in history
when all God’s creatures sailed upon the sea!

Old Noah built an Ark, which two by two
each kind of animal was led into.

A pair of pandas got put in the middle
of that boat! But pandas are not little!

The pandas, since they could not move about,
would sometimes bump into some creature’s snout.

Poor Mrs. Panda had no privacy
and felt too flustered when she had to pee!

Poor Mr. Panda, lost his wife’s affection,
and sadly afterwards, lost his erection.

The pandas, once they got off of the Ark,
were somehow able to regain their spark.

They ended up in China, learning to
“get it on again” and eat bamboo!

But now they face extinction once again,
thanks this time to crimes of modern men.

Everything is now against the norm.
Forced together, pandas can’t perform.

Such failure, like it was in Noah’s day,
must just be part of Panda’s DNA.

Let’s hope that we’ll be hearing very soon
the pandas being told to ‘get a room!”

This was originally meant for some Noah's Ark contest
that never got judged. So here it is now for YOU, PD!!

    Pandas are such nice animals - so cute! You tell a good tale of them in this poem. Have you ever read Rumi? He was a fine poet and I pay him a tribute in my latest poem. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    I enjoyed this. A cheeky write but also underlining the grave danger of this beautiful species.

    Quite the imagination of Panda facination. I too am shy about such things. But in a time of sweet elation when nothing else matters but engratiation. My buttons pop and the bell always rings. Please fogive my little randy rant. But your poem was inspiring so I shant recant.
