I heard that Giraffes have been protected from being slaughtered for their body parts for the first time this week....So a celebratory poem


It's Wonderful to have 

A long neck

It reaches up

To the sky

I can nibble leaves 

On treetops

And smile at


As they

Fly by

It's just


Having this

Long neck

I can see

For Miles around

I always know

Where all

My friends are

And where the

Best food

Can be


I love 

Having such

A long


Although I'm


One to 


Cos' sometimes

I Really

Hate it

That's when

I get

A sore



◄ Always Intertwined

What's Left? ►
