Big City Zoo


I went to the big city zoo
Saw a cute little kangaroo
And:
A muster of peacocks
A cluster of chicks
A pride of lions
(The kangaroo kicks) .
And:
A shoal of herring
A school of whales
A flight of swallows
A bevy of quails
All of their keepers carried big pails.
For:
A skulk of foxes
A gaggle of geese
A drove of oxen
A hive of bees
The feathers and furs now cause me to sneeze!
A troop of monkeys
A herd of bulls
A cast of hawks
A pack of wolves
When this bunch of animals saw the big pails,
Such a clamorous discord of rackety rails! !

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
