Why there were no Unicorns on Noah's Ark

Build an ark out of gopher wood that’s what I want from you.
Noah said he would to God and he and his sons set out to do.

Take two of all the animals of the unclean variety 
But seven of the clean kind, are you listening Noah to me?

Yes lord I hear you, and I will do your Will.
Can you tell me how long before, the water the earth will fill?

Build the ark now Noah, and do not question me
You have a huge task ahead, and I will save your family.

The ark now built, the pitch spread, the unclean animals passed two by two
The pigs the camels and unclean ones, for food I do not give to you.

As for the clean ones, take seven of each I say
And then there will be food for you, when you leave the ark one day.

But what about the unicorn God, they are so hard to find?
I am afraid then Noah, said God, that he must be left behind.

If we find another though, is it a beast unclean or clean
Would we need seven or two, I am not sure what you mean?

If you find another one Noah, the rains I will keep away
Because I am now telling you. the last one has flown today

Oh my Lord why is that, the unicorn is so fine
Yes, said God to Noah, and that’s why he is mine.
