Funny Lookin' Creature With a Squeaky Bark

I looked behind me when I heard a squeaky little bark From out of the bushes, a kangaroo-looking creature rose His bright green eyes flashed neon signs at me in the dark, then he raised his long piggy snout and struck a silly pose. "Have you escaped from the zoo to wander in the park?" His bunny ears flopped before he wiggled long-clawed toes. He replied, "No. I'm looking for ants cuz I'm an aardvark." I invited him to join me for dinner at the café, Java Joes. ^-^ - ^-^ 8-20-17

Lin, I am LOVING the animal poems. Kevin sure picked a great topic. I just need to hurry and narrow down an animal to do. I love animals!!! (it's hard for me just to pick one!) You chose well.
