When Noah was allotting berths
to fill his floating zoo,
He wrote down everybody’s name –
An animals’ ‘Who’s Who?’

From Aardvark through to Zebra
every creature had its place,
But poor old Terry Tarmigan
had a frown upon his face.

For there, his name on Noah’s list,
(he’d thought the man much brainier)
was down to share a cabin with
that Devil from Tasmania!

He said to Noah, “Please don’t think
I’m just a selfish bore,
but I’m a game bird, plump and pink,
and he’s a carnivore.

I wouldn’t last five minutes
with a bunk-mate of that kind –
You’d make the world a safer place
If he were left behind”

But Noah said, “God told me
to take every living creature,
or later, when the Bible’s written,
I won’t even feature”

“But Petrels, Peacocks, Pelicans,
and Parrots are my friends.
The Parakeets are really sweet –
Why can’t I bunk with them?”

“Oh, alright then” said Noah
“(I’m such a soft old sod).
I’ll write your name down with a ‘P’ …..
but don’t go telling God!”
