Black Rhino Born - Lincoln Park Zoo
When we cross proud papa, Maku,
With first time mama, Kapuki,
We get wow result - yes we do.
We get a li'l black rhino - me!
Newborn vitals - weight sixty pounds,
Thirty inches from horn to tail.
Quite a big boy in mama - zounds!
The tough work's done by the female.
The Lincoln Park Zoo is my crib.
Other places, humans are mean.
All nice here - I'm too young to fib.
The world will know I've made the scene.
The Zoo might have a contest game.
You get a chance to pick my name.
