Yellow Rhinoceros---for Josie
Yellow Rhinoceros

I once saw a yellow rhinoceros
And everyone said, "That's preposterous!"
But soon they all went
Because of the scent
He'd farted and it smelled like phospherous!

They were giving themselves a bath 
And over by the river bank 
Was a lonesome male giraffe

Or one of those crazy chicks

Enormous gentle beast
Equals man's compassion.
Each has powerful strength,
Ears that have massive size.
Elongated nose helps
Enrich all its senses.
Earth's largest animal.

To every guest -
Who was thoroughly amused

Rhinoceros and elephants
are hunted for their horns...
there are very few extant:
profit has a malicious intent!

Predators are to blame for the merciless
slaughtering...they attack these harmless,
huge animals...
