A poodle ate a doughnut
And turned into a wheel.
A zebra said, “Good morning!”
To a pretty, diving seal.
A monkey found two drumsticks
And drummed upon the moon.
A cat sat down to a banquet
With a fork, a knife, and a spoon.
A bull bowed on a fiddle
Atop a hemlock tree.
Grandpa wrote a poem
About a circus flea.
A pig, a goat, a rooster
Marched off to school today.
And I’m a queen on a golden throne.
What fun it is to play
