Geoffrey …

Geoffrey the gentle giraffe

could take in all the sights,

the problem with his long neck was

that Geoffrey was scared of heights.

He wished he was more like an ostrich

where he’d be closer to the land,

and when things became too much

he could bury his head in the sand.

The hyenas laughed at poor Geoffrey

other giraffes stayed out of his way,

the lions all roared disapproval

and the monkeys had nothing to say.

Geoffrey worked hard to find a solution

so he’d be happy in heart and soul,

for weeks he was seen with a shovel

and now he stands in a great big hole.
