An excursion for school, a trip to the zoo
Excited children, all from grade two
The wanted to see hippos,
They wanted to see birds
But little did I know
Johnny would leave me without words.

It wasn’t near the tigers, or near the lion
Or even when Melissa did start her crying
It was over near the caves
When Johnny’s words got all frizzly
And I heard him say
“Don’t fight a bear because they often turn grizzly”
