Jungle Jinks

It was break time in the Jungle The elephant took his chance To ask the lady hippo If she'd like to dance. The Leo Lion Combo, Sax drums guitar and bass, Mightily played away So music filled the space. Twenty seven giraffe Employed just for the night Carried rigs to Illuminate From their great height, With strobes and spots And dimmers and flash. The Zebra formation troupe Performed with zeal and dash. The chimp in the corner Made obeisance to the Gnu As they joined the Palais Glide Proceeding two by two by two. The jungle buzzed and jived During this daily break Until the back to work buzzer Was sounded by a duty snake. The daily truce was over, The Bush baby decided to beat it Before some hungry carnivore Tried to catch and eat it. The tempo had been fast The rhythm nice and loose And the animals had enjoyed Their daily pre lunch truce. Back to normal in the jungle, Twenty four hours to survive Until the excitement of The next daily Jungle Jive. Bow to your partner Then take your chance To make good your escape After the last notes of the dance.
