                     GEORGE WASHINGTON


pondering Pictures, Images and Photos                          
                           Why won't you believe me?
                           I tell you it's true.
                           Your nutty friend Annette
                           Was raised in a zoo.

                           Star light, star bright,
                           Who's joining me in my cage tonight?

                           Peanuts are great
                           But I passed the test
                           When I told my keeper
                           I liked bananas best.

                           You may have a ball
                           Climbin' a wall,
                           But as for me
                           I'll take a tree.
                               (My closest friend
                               Was a chimpanzee).

                           Do you believe me now?
                           Would I ever lie?
                           Please say yes
                           Or I will cry.

                           I love you more
                           Than any of the others,
                           Because you brought me a photo
                           Of my long lost brothers.
                           So one day soon
                           When we have nothing to do,
                           Let's visit my old home town,
                               THE BRONX ZOO.

                                        P.S. I love you too.

                                        Annette Wexler

                   (He really brought me a photo of three monkeys).
