To the Giraffe
Lake Oswego, Oregon — I'd like to write a poem to the giraffe But I can't think of a rhyme, except "one half." Half a giraffe is no good at all. I like giraffes because they're tall. Still. . . I suppose A silly rhyme Is better than no valentine. So here's to you, my fond giraffe, A little verse to make you laugh. Roses are red, Violets are blue You got the best neck In the whole zoo.
