Afternoon Tea


It was a day of jubilation when
The alligators came to tea
Though I didn't quite like
The way they looked at me
A Jungle Jazz Combo played
Do Wap free and loose
As we all celebrated the day
Of the  inter species truce.

The chimps played the brass
A gorilla sang deep bass
While the giraffe conducted
Them to a cracking pace.
The lion sat there with the lamb
Ominously licking his lips
As he licked the brown sauce off
A large plate of chips.

Wolves, Hyenas and Hippos
All shared the same plate
As the truce continued in
A very uneasy state.
They fired a starting pistol
Ten minutes before the end
To give them chance to escape
From any new found friend.

Certain of the guests
Departed in a run
At the first crack
Of the warning gun.
I really didn't like the way
The alligators looked at me
As we declared at end
The first inter species tea.

Although I was quite pleased
With the way it went
I don't think we'll be
Making It an annual event.
It took me nearly a week
To clear the mess from the scene
So it was as spick and span as
Though the event had never been.
