The City Zoo

A cute gentile pig in New York plays hopscotch over turtle hurdles which eased her bunny until a smack talking turkey announced, 'Did you hear how the skunks in bombay lost a spelling bee - to an artistic aardvark named clark?' Around her, muttering mosquitoes Dear teddy bear, my teddy bear While a mynah bird confesses to freeing an elephant Who stands where dragons roam dreaming of dinosaurs, as King Doberman eavesdrops on Seagulls talking to a sock monkey Don't have a cow The little red squirrel told my lioness- Koalas love a cooling tang. 7/21/19 For 20 Titles from 20 Friends contest Sponsor: Richard Lamoureux A cute gentile pig in New York - Gershon Wolf Turtle Hurdles - Mark Toney Eased Her Bunny - Rico Leffanta Smack Talking Turkey - Freddie Robinson Jr Skunks in Bombay - Pat Adams Spelling Bee - Line Gauthier Artistic Aardvark named Clark - Caren Krutsinger Muttering mosquitoes - sand blown Dear teddy bear, my teddy bear - Connie Marcum Wong A Mynah Bird Confesses - Kim Rodrigues Freeing an Elephant - Suzanne Delany Where Dragons Roam - P.S.

Ah what a GREAT idea to create a zoo from people’s animal poems. Everyone’s got one, right? Personally, if I lost a spelling bee to an artistic aardvark, I’d keep it quiet lol! Great silly fun. Hope it didn’t take all weekend!
