AARDVARK TO ZEBRA


Do you think a mud puppy could bark
At a porcupine pining or a meadowlark?

Might a British gymnast named Deborah
Ride on the back of a circus Zebra?

If the Emperor Penguin had new clothes
Would they be transparent? No one knows,

And would the aardvark be sorely missed
If dethroned from the alphabetical list?
