A Crazy Zoo Milieu
~by Laurie Kolp

A funny thing happened on the way to the zoo
We were stopped by a hippo wearing a shoe
In search of the other one he lost at noon
While on a picnic with a horse and a loon
After we joined in Mr. Hippo’s hunt
We ran into a monkey performing a stunt
A ring of fire he was jumping through
Laughing as the ape played a kazoo
As we searched for the shoe still missing
Our eyes espied two circus clowns kissing
We chuckled at the uncanny event
Wondering how they escaped the tent
All of the sudden we heard a whistle
As loud as a siren before a missile
Chaos erupted like a molten volcano
The animals hid and became incognito
Policemen came searching like predators
One holding the shoe missing for hours
Exhausted from all the ruckus and fuss
We drove home grateful for our pet walrus
