 ramblings and things

Jungle Jinks

It was break time in the Jungle
The elephant took his chance
To ask the lady hippo
If she'd like to dance.

The Leo Lion Combo,
Sax drums guitar and bass,
Mightily played away
So music filled the space.

Twenty seven giraffe
Employed just for the night
Carried rigs to Illuminate
From their great height,

With strobes and spots
And dimmers and flash.
The Zebra formation troupe
Performed with zeal and dash.

The chimp in the corner
Made obeisance to the Gnu
As they joined the Palais Glide
Proceeding two by two by two.

The jungle buzzed and jived
During this daily break
Until the back to work buzzer
Was sounded by a duty snake.

The daily truce was over,
The Bush baby  decided to beat it
Before some hungry carnivore
Tried to catch and eat it.

The tempo had been fast
The rhythm nice and loose
And the animals had enjoyed
Their daily pre lunch truce.

Back to normal in the  jungle,
Twenty four hours to survive
Until the excitement of
The next daily Jungle Jive.

Bow to your partner
Then take your chance
To make good your escape
After the last notes of the  dance.
