WHERE WE’D BEEN?
If I were a dog, I know what I’d do,
I’d dig out of my pen and go to the zoo.
And when I got there I’d follow through,
And uncage all the other animals too.
The lions and tigers, the kangaroo,
Bears and buffalo and the quick running gnu.
Elephant, rhino, and a hairy baboon,
Hippos and penguins and a sad calling loon.
Once all the animals were out running free,
We’d rush to the mall to see a movie.
We’d eat candy, pop corn, and icy sno-cones.
Then when it was over, we’d all hurry home.
We’d close all our doors, clean up any mess,
So no one would know, and no one could guess.
I hope you have a great week. Can you write a poem about your favorite animal? Maybe you can make it a riddle poem where each line gives a clue and you don't reveal what the animal is until the last line.
