MISS VERONICA SCHOVER SHEAQIED
Miss Veronica has been invited
to the crocodile's Ball.
Oh what shall she wear
to the crocodile's Ball
she frets and she sweats
gets even upset..nothing to wear
Sir Dickens waits while he takes
his place in line after the snakes
at the crocodile's Ball.
He sees his friend the armadillo
dancing with the tall
but dashing, young gorilla.
Madam Ramsey also is in a frenzy
hopes to dine in style.
Her mane she cannot tame
oh so vain, reaches for the sky.
The humble tortoise patiently at ease
is calm, oh so sublime
does not worry, you see.
His friend is old and very feeble
gives him a lift in his automobeetle
they spot Joe the cuscus from
Papua New Guinea
so nocturnal, wouldn't miss it.
All in all the night well spent
the delicacies a main event,
and the musicians even glistened
as moonlight on the listeners
dancing, glancing and prancing
horse and tortoises and all sorts
of creatures you see
Veronica could see she
did not need to be so anxious but free.
"NOt that I speak in
regard to need, for I have
learned in whatever state
I am, to be content."
