A playful young puppy called Spot Sailed away one day on a yacht With two of his brothers And quite a few others They set off at eight on the dot. The wind blew them over the sea Till they came to the Isle of Capri Where they welcomed on board A regular hoard Of cats and a mouse and a bee The next day they set off again To their next destination, Spain A few bulls joined the crew And some rabbits came too Plus an owl with a very wise brain The sailed for a year and a day Picking animals up all the way Long-legged giraffes Some hyenas for laughs And the whole ship was happy and gay After that, according to plan They returned to where they began Creaking and straining The yacht now containing Almost every breed known to man Now Spot and the rest of the crew Knew just what they needed to do When the passengers landed They marched out mob-handed And opened the world’s largest zoo 25th November 2022 Children's Limerick Poetry Contest Sponsor - Eve Roper
