Treasure Island

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! !

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
