Animal Poems

 

Mary had a little lamb

 

Mary had a little lamb,

Whose quack was way too loud,

She stuffed a carrot down its snout,

Then baked it for 30 minutes at Gas Mark 7.

(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)

 

There once was a parrot named Jack

 

There once was a parrot named Jack,

Who suffered a coronary attack,

The man from the vet,

With little regret,

Said , “Toasted he’ll make a nice snack”.

(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane) 

 

Never Marry an Elephant

Never Marry an Elephant,

It’s not a good idea,

I met one once at a dance,

While drinking too much beer.

 

Before I knew, I had proposed,

And a wedding day was set,

We weren’t married by a minister,

We were married by the Vet.

 

We honeymooned at Glasgow Zoo,

It was a lot of fun,

We spent our time eating penguins,
While basking in the sun.

 

But soon our marriage was over,

And I was free once more,

Oh never marry an elephant,

For by gosh how they SNORE!

(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)
