King Cobra

king cobra

There are many kinds of snakes:
There’s vipers, adders, boas…
But none’s as cool
As this snake that rules:
The long, deadly, King Cobra!

When I’m surprised
I raise head high
And stretch my neck out wide
It’s just my way
To simply say:

I’m not your friend
Touch me – you’re dead!
My fangs are filled with venom!
Like lightning strikes
I’ve a quick bite
I’m a snake to stay away from!

I’m unique, cool,
But this snake rules…
By causing lots of fear!
So now you know
The King Cobra
Is a snake not to be near!

The ape that is first-rate
Is the Orangutan!
It’s fair to state…
I’m not just GREAT…
I AM!!!

Up in the trees
If you do see
Swinging orangutans…

From down below
Just wave hello!
You’re sure to be our fan!

For it is great
To be an ape
As AWESOME as I am!
Gray face, red arms…
Can’t help but charm…


Wonderpus by Jenny Huang from Taipei

Within the sea
There’s no beauty
Like the wondrous Wonderpus
My slender arms
Can’t help but charm
The brave and curious.

For can you spot
My cute white spots?
They’re simply marvelous!
And if you sketched
Me as I stretched
Your art would be gorgeous!

The ocean’s star
With eight long arms
A type of octopus –
But I’m the type
That’s worth the hype –
The pretty Wonderpus!!!



I’m orange, white
A cute delight
I avoid enemies
By swimming through
The tentacles
Of sea anemones!

You’ll know my type
By my white stripes
We color up a reef
But don’t get close
Because my host
Is quite the stinging thief!

I’m world renowned
I could be crowned
The prettiest of fish!
So just enjoy
The swimming joy
That is the sweet clownfish!



I often climb
In a straight line
To the top of a tree
And I’m the type
Whose tail is striped
And also quite bushy!

I’m not afraid
To tip and raid
A smelly garbage can
I’ll fill my gut
With bugs and nuts
Whatever I can stand!

And you may ask
Who with black mask
Crawls under a bright moon
That would be I!
The savvy, sly,
Night-crawling, masked raccoon!



From wing to wing
We’re amazing
The longest bird across!
You don’t know size
Until your eyes
Have seen an albatross!

When they expand
My great wingspan
Uses technique sublime
I fly all day
In such a way
My wings flap not one time!

A true bird lover
Would discover
This bird that’s enormous
To come across
An albatross
Is to behold what’s gorgeous!
