The Jungle Book

A Poem by Woody

King of the Jungle

Zan lives in the jungle with the apes

He’s feared by lions and gators

He fell in a barrel of tar by the lake

While picking up wild potaters

Now the hyenas are mocking the man

They laugh n’ jeer n’ call him Tar Zan 

 

Smoking Jane

When Jane threw her cigarette on the forest floor

Unwittingly ignoring the ashtray by the door

 

She started a fire that spread like… wild fire

Making the elephant climb a tree, to escape the pyre

 

But for his defense, he made a trunk call, posthaste

Before the whole freaking place went to waste

 

The firefighters started running hither and thither

Hurriedly drawing water from the nearby river

 

Now Tarzan despondently stood and watched his domain

As crying Jane promised not to ever smoke again

 

 

Hide and Seek

The felines met to play a game

Tigers, lions, they all came


“Come let’s all play hide and seek

And I promise I’ll not peek,”


Said the leopard they call Rita

But they knew she was a cheetah

 

 

Huma

 

There was a young man from Yuma

Who once told a joke to a puma

Now the puma didn’t laugh

But, instead, bit his calf

That puma had no sense of huma

Gee
And the monkeys came, all lesbians,
led by the crop haired Lana,
who got her kicks, with primate chicks,
and her Ann Summers banana.
Whilst the monkey males,told sad tales,
of life without vagina,
their bleeding hearts responsible for,
the sharp rise in acute angina.

Morning Woody !!!

haha that's the extent of my poetry prowess, I'm afraid. thank you very much for dropping in, Terry.
Hilarious. And it all makes perfect sense. I really love how the end is totally unrelated.

This is an onslaught of humor, my friend! Altho you've taken me to the African jungle, I ended up in a Midwest cornfield! The first & last stanzas were definitely standing out for me -- hilarious. I love the limerick . . . nobody does 'em anymore! Great share!

And Arnold said, "It's not a tuma!" LOLOLOL (https://youtu.be/OaTO8_KNcuo)

I enjoyed these heartily. They made my tummy giggle. Especially Hide and Seek and Huma. I thought they all had very nice flow and rhyme too. Perfect for children's books.
