I COULDN'T EAT

A WHOLE ONE

By Josie Whitehead

I Couldn't Eat a Whole One

I like puppy dogs and tabby cats;
Frogs and toads and big grey rats;
    Elephants and hippos too;
    All creatures that live at the zoo –

     But I couldn’t eat a whole one.

I like whales that swim in the sea 
And koala bears up in the tree;
    Giraffes  and rhinos, grizzly bears -
    Especially the ones that scare –

     But I couldn’t eat a whole one.

I like horses, bulls and kangaroos;
Mountain goats and cows that moo;
     Large animals and those that bite;
     Those of day and of the night -

 

    But I couldn’t eat a whole one!

I like squirrels, moles and badgers too;
 And llamas that come from Peru;
     The short and fat, the thin and tall!
      Oh yes, I really love them all - - - 

     But I’m so full that I am sure 
     I couldn’t eat one mouthful more!
