AT THE ZOO by A. A. Milne

There are lions and roaring tigers, and enormous camels and things,
There are biffalo-buffalo-bisons, and a great big bear with wings,
There's a sort of tiny potamus, and a tiny nosserus too -
But I gave buns to the elephant when I went down to the Zoo!

There are badgers and bidgers and bodgers, and a Super-in-tendent's House,
There are masses of goats, and a Polar, and different kinds of mouse,
And I think there's a sort of a something which is called a wallaboo -
But I gave buns to the elephant when I went down to the Zoo!

If you try to talk to the bison, he never quite understands;
You can't shake hands with a mingo - he doesn't like shaking hands.
And lions and roaring tigers hate saying "How do you do?" -
But I give buns to the elephant when I go down to the Zoo!

You missed the opportunity for duck-duck-goose. :p
Zoo seems fun. It sounds like there were a lot of local wildlife exhibits.

>> don't have wolves or bison <<

I *know* people have seen wolves in some before, either in the local zoo or in memories way way back from roadtrips. No one's seen a bison. I'd guess it's the size and herd range, but if zoos can do elephants I'd be really surprised if they can't do bison.

>> rrrrrr <<

Good rrrrrr or bad rrrrrr? Amazed rrrrrr?

>> I am so small compared to the beings of the land. <<

Lol yeah. I'm tallish but I'd pale in comparison to a lot of things too.

>> I hope against hope that within my lifetime I will be able to see the great Condor's wings spread over the wide skies. <<

That would be amazing. Are their ranges near you? Birding networks that you could ask about sightings?
