Dolphins don’t recite poetry

Pandas never discuss Kant ,

Seagulls are rarely eloquent

and Hyenas do nothing but rant ;

Orangutans like listening to Brahms

Piranhas enjoy Winter sports ,

Mountain Lions are socially maladroit

and Kangaroos never wear shorts ;

Chipmunks are big fans of Sinatra

Rhinos look good in Wellington boots ,

Basking Sharks frequent public libraries

and Gazelles favour three-piece suits .
