Took the kids to the Petting Zoo. All the tame animals came through. While I was standing watching the monkeys And chimpanzees there in the few trees I felt something tugging at me; I turned around to see A goat eat-ding my tee-shirt. I shrieked, walk backwards, fell to the dirt. Standing intently beside me, the giraffe Stretch out its long tongue with a laugh. Out of my skin cut and scraped, I shout, Crawl on my hands, as I was tensely strung -out, Stole my bag of buttered popcorn. Crawling backwards dirt-borne, Screaming, flapping my arms in the air. Everyone stood to stare, Laughing everywhere. 11/28/2020
