At the 

 

 

 

 

with apologies to Simon and Garfunkel



The Monkeys

 

 

stand for honesty

Giraffes

 

 

are insincere

 

 

 

And theElephants

 

 

 

 

are kindly but they’re dumb*

Orangutans are skeptical

Of changes in their cages

And the zookeeper is very fond of rum

Zebras

are reactionaries

Antelopes are missionaries

Pigeons plot in secrecy

And hamsters turn on frequently what a gas

Back to the song already!

 

Guess where I spent MY entire weekend? I originally thought Mr.’s Simon and Garfunkel would give me the opportunity to upload lots of my pictures. I was wrong. They want animals I don’t have and lack verses for all the ones I’ve got. Tragedy. That’s OK. I massacred their song anyway. (And yes, when you kill every line of two verses, it can properly be called a massacre.)

  1. Have you considered mangling this to the tune of "Feelin groovy"?
    Looks like a fun way to spend the day!

     Are the animals well treated there, with enough room?

  2. I still like what you did with this, Jessie. Very creative. And, I love the photos.
