BLESS MY SOUL - IT'S AUNTY!! 

By Josie Whitehead

Bless My Soul, It's Aunty

I never cease to be amazed
     When to the zoo I go,
To see folk troop to see the apes,
      Their faces all aglow.

Each looks at t’other with alarm,
     Or perhaps it’s with respect.
And what do they both recognize?
     Family features I suspect.

So when you observe an orangutan
     Who stares at you in thought,
He’s really thinking: 'Bless my soul -
      It’s Aunty that they’ve brought!!'
