Strange

What else?

Have you seen what I did see
Smiling giraffes snugly in bed
A pair of tigers merrily in a taxi
Or a snake hissing riding a bike

Strange happenings are in the air
In the sitting room a ‘roo on a  chair
With a pair of alligators full of hair
Watching TV with a horse and a mare

A gorilla atop the huge chandelier
Swinging with a canary to the music of rock
A bear with a lion’s mane as headgear
Curled together a cat and a dog

Would you then be outwardly surprised
To see a slow loris wailing, happily singing
On the desktop dancing, teeming with mice
A  pair of ostrich on a couch nearby necking

What else is new?
Dropping  from the sky an elephant with wings!
