Alphabet Zoo – The Elephant

The elephants in our British zoo,
Are always catching colds and flus,
Because they come from the sun,
Where temperature peak at 41.
And imagine if you had a nose,
Longer than a garden hose,
Imagine if you had to sneeze,
With your nose so long and free,
You’d try to blow a sweet Achoo,
That sounds more like a big HAROOOO!


Alphabet Zoo – The Dung Beetle

For why you’d want to be a bug,
That spends it’s day rolling dung,
From camels cows and kangaroos,
This beetle collects and rolls it’s poos,
And stores it fresh in a hole,
For dinner, stews and casseroles,
Once he made a huge poo pie,
And invited round the bugs to try.
Cockroach he turned up his nose,
And said that pie just didn’t go,
Cricket said I won’t eat that,
Lady bird: ‘that will make me fat’,
The fly he said I don’t share my dung,
And beetle gagged and off he run.
The dung bug sighed and then he,
Thought and thought ‘well more for me’.

Alphabet Zoo – The Camel

A camel, is a magnificent beast,
From Africa and the Middle East.
But the camel Here in alphabet zoo,
Came from the land Timbuktu.
And when we noticed something wrong,
Our camel did not run along,
He did not eat or roll in sand,
He did not spit or help out man,
We told our vet, our camel grumps,
He suggested he must have the hump!

This poem is part of Alphabet Zoo, you can find this in my categories. The idea of it is some light hearted humorous poems, to get my mind in gear for the April A-Z Challenge.

Alphabet Zoo – The Jazz Bee

Exhibit 2, we call ‘The Jive’
Is of course the Jazz bee Hive.
Jazz bees named because of that,
They dance and sing and bop and scat.
Music made by the sound of wings,
The band they named themselves the stings,
There’s bee bop and bee bop skeet,
They’re on rhythm bass and beat,
On vocal we have the Honey pack,
And Bugabee sings and plays the sax.
And after a few nectar brews,
The jazz bees bop in ones and twos.

The Challenge

Sign up for the A-Z April challenge has begun, leaving us with just 2 months to prepare, and this year I MUST prepare.

You can see last years challenge by clicking on my categories and viewing ‘A-Z April 2012 Challenge’. After finding and signing up to the challenge just a few days before it started, I left myself unprepared and most poems were wrote on the day in very little time. So this year I have learned from my mistakes and I’m all geared up for the challenge.

My creative cogs haven’t been turning in a while, and I haven’t wrote properly since around June last year. So the challenge may be a little more of an effort this year.

A fellow blogger decided he would get back into it by doing his own A-Z, and I’m joining him by writing Alphabet Zoo.

You can find Alphabet Zoo in my categories, they are silly and fun little poems, based around the idea of a zoo tour, and is simply just to get my mind working in rhyme again.

For the April 2013 A-Z Challenge, my poems will all be based on a theme. Last year my poems were all on varied subjects, and allowed me to write in ways I hadn’t before and on subjects I would normally disregard. But this year I have the idea of perhaps basing an E-book on what I write, and therefore sticking to one theme. But you will have to wait and see what that is!

So now you are here, snoop around, read some poems and have a laugh. Being out the blogosphere for a while I feel neglected, so a comment would be a treat!

If you’d like to follow my progress and join the Alphabet zoo tour, well Today is B! This will be posted later today, tomorrow will be C and so on and so forth. You can also follow me on twitter @Amy_Dot90

Alphabet Zoo – The Ants

There’s Ants Inside our first enclosure,
It’s filled with near 10,000 soilders,
Exhibit 1; they’re first in line,
A tiny army fight zoo crime.
Lifting more than thrice their size,
And building forts in short of time.
An army like some small marines,
Led and captained by their queen.
Prepared for battle standing tall,
As workers build and repair the walls,
Our Small Ant Army, first defense,
I warn you not to scale our fence.
With pincered heads instead or swords,
Armored skin grown for war.
A man once caught who climbed the gate,
Soon he met horrific fate,
As he was soon caught and found,
And carried to their nest and mound.…
