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.
