Let's visit the zoo

How would you like to travel to a place and see a lion lurking on a ledge.
Or watch the largest living animal, the elephant march across the field.
Imagine a place where Lorikeet perch on your arms and hands.
Or stare straight at a gorilla and not run for your life.
Where is this place? It's the Zoo!
Wally, Pete, Buddy and I went to the Riverbanks Zoo. We explored the sites and seen all kinds of animals and learned cool facts along the way . We hopped on a train, then fed a giraffe and even watched a 3D adventure show. And all this at the zoo. This great adventure inspired me to write a poem about the zoo. So let's visit the zoo.


LET'S GO TO THE ZOO

The alarm goes off and up comes the sun.
It's time to get ready to have some fun.
You get out of bed and what do you do?
You go on a trip to visit the zoo.
You go through the gate and what do you see?
The tiger is pacing and a lemur is on a tree.
You look at the elephant and the meerkats too.
You see the black bear and the flamingos in view.
Koalas are pretty cute and the baboon is on the go.
Sea lions are swimming and the turtles are slow.
You spy on the gator and the gorilla on the grass,
You stare at the snake and the fish behind the glass.
Zebra makes you dizzy and the rhino's sitting down,
Monkey is with a baby and the lion is wearing a frown.
You spot a wild leopard and the lizard on the ground.
You find a gray goat and the cougar running around.
The cheetah goes fast and the jackals can run.
The puma's on the move and otter's having fun.
You follow the weasel and the big horn sheep,
You come across a fox and the panda's asleep.
Watch the penguins walk and all the birds fly,
Notice the kangaroos and the bats hanging high.
Hippo's in the water and the giraffe is really tall.
Ostrich is eating and there's a pony in the stall.
You have seen all the animals in your visit at the zoo,
We hope you had fun and learned something new.
It's time to go home, we'd love to see you again.
We hope you come back and bring along a friend.
