The Docent at the Zoo

The Docent at the Zoo 


The docent in the peach cloche hat
leads the rest of us 
around the rhino into better light.

She leads us to the guardrail 
at the supper hour to watch 
the keeper reach inside  

the large glass case.
The docent wants us all to see the rat
delight the python.
