Noah's Ark

God asked Noah to build an ark he was happy to oblige but he wasn't so keen when he found out what had to go inside Two of every animal then you must set sail the animals were fearful the whale began to wail Even the Gnu knew this idea would surely falter but every beast preferred this idea than being led by nose to slaughter Noah followed the order from gnat to lion to horse this was a recipe for Pandamonium but Noah knew this of course Seating plans were issued but an almighty row took place The lion the king of the jungle argued that he was a special case The Queen Bee wanted second billing while the Emperor penguin demanded a throne while the homing pigeon panicked at not being able to find his way home Nightime was the worst sleep was beyond them all with the woodpecker continually pecking and the gloworm lighting up the hall The doves tried to keep the peace as all hell broke loose while bets were taken on who had the longest face the horse, anteater or moose The pandas tried to be romantic sleep deprivation made their eyes go black the magpies kept stealing the others duvets and the squirrels were nuts to turn back The elephants said they'd never forget and they wished they packed more in their trunk while the terrible smell that stunk out the place was eventually blamed on the skunk The bears awoke with sore heads they had drunk all their supplies in one night while the hyenas found it hilarious at their next door neighbours plight The crows shouted blue murder but the bats were blind to it all the ravens were ignored by the masses as all they said was 'never more' The maggots agreed it was just rotten luck to be stuck in this mobile zoo and every time the peacock showed his feathers it made the pigeones coo The badgers were set in their ways the sheep said their wool was a curse while the spiders got a verbal warning for using a sows ear to weave up a purse Finally they found dry land the hare raced out in the lead while the tortoise said there was more to life than doing everything at top speed Noah was happy that the journey had ended and this was the end of the road but at least one species had enjoyed the trip the rabbit population had increased ten fold!
