I went to the zoo on Sunday with some friends, which was a pretty great day. Having mentioned the fact that I high-fived a monkey to a few of my friends a few times, I was mulling over a related rhyme which finally blossomed in to a poem during the music/poetry session I was at this evening (Monday). That brilliant one over in Abingdon. I also got to feed Rainbow Lorikeets, there’s a picture at the bottom.
All of the adventures are true. Enjoy and let me know what you think below!
Life’s Little AdventuresI once high-fived a tamarin, And then I shook its paw. Before the keeper told me off, For having a finger near the door. I once got locked in Regent’s Park, And had to climb the fence. Topped with great big metal spikes, It got somewhat intense. I once removed a jet engine, And with my best friend took it apart. We did put it all back again, But I’ve no idea if it will start. I once leapt from the top of my uni, And abseiled down the towers. Dressed as Bonnie Charlie’s Life Guard, Having just defended the uni for 36-hours. I once tried to outrun the inbound tide, And sprint through the gap between wall and sea. But I was too slow as the waves raced in, To soak almost all of me. I once went to an open mic session, And had no idea what lay in store. Where so many styles and talents co-exist, Each week I come back for more.
