A giraffe approached We necked An elephant met me on the jungle path I stored many thoughts in his trunk A monkey smiles at me Now I have no more bananas A zebra wants to discuss the issues of life I replied, such things are never black and white On a boat, an alligator swam by He offered to sell me an old family briefcase I have, I confess a gold fish with blonde hair I named her Donald as bizarre as it seems I tried to hire a group of rabbits I said it’s the carrot or the stick They were hopping mad Multiplying their demands I gave in My coyote lawyer was useless in such matters Alas as I am older now So I bought a turtle He slows me down a little I slow him down a lot I now have a great admiration For Dr Doolittle Who after all Did a little and a lot Although there was that one case never solved No one though, really gives a quack!

I apologize for implying that you were stuck up... I don't know what possessed me to say something so stupid. I hope you can forgive me. All the best, Keith

Very funny stuff, Arthur, and a lot of packed in jokes. I'm still imagining how slow you must be going to be beaten by a turtle! Most creative.
