Young Johnny came home all excited,
telling of his school trip to the farm,
and just what it was he had sighted.
“We saw chooks nesting inside their coop.”
Johnny told his Daddy, so elated.
“Then they paraded outside like a troop”
“We saw goats that had little horns.
They stink and make lots of noise
and their poop sticks to ‘em like thorns.”
“We saw sheep that baaed quiet a lot
their lambs were kind of cute
But some poor sheep do get fly rot?”
“There was also some big hairy llamas.
‘Long necks’ the farmer did call them
and their hairy coats act just like pyjamas.”
“In the stables we saw lots of horses.
Eating hay and having a rest
‘cause they no longer run on race courses.”
“What about some cows?” Dad, he did ask
“We saw them too,” Little Johnny said.
But Dad could see laughter he was trying to mask
“The farmer thought we were suckers
Because then he told us all about ‘effers
But I was smart and knew he meant fuckers!”
