The School Outing

Mrs. Stokes took Green Class on an outing to the zoo
I’ll tell you all the naughty things the children got up to

While Paul was watching the penguins waddling down the path
He leaned too far and fell right in and then he had a bath

When Matthew fed the monkeys with nuts and bit of bread
A monkey stole his bobble-hat and put it on his head

When Chloe road a camel it went over a bump
She fell and landed in some mud. She really got the hump

When Helen posed for a picture in front of a giraffe
It bent down low and licked her face and everyone did laugh

Ashley tried to imitate a snake by going ‘Hiss’
It sounded so much like it the snake gave him a kiss

When Lara patted the panda there was a thunder clap
The panda was frightened of thunder. It jumped on Lara’s lap

Hailey was in the hot house watching butterflies
A big one landed on her nose. That was a surprise

Jimmy sat in the bird house eating crisps from a packet
A parrot on his shoulder did a whoopsy down his jacket

Mrs. Stokes had had enough; she went bright red with rage
She ranted, raved and gave a roar – they put her in a cage
