THEY LOOK LIKE US
She'd been to a park where is also a zoo,
Noting the animals as children will do,
That evening while talking with her Uncle Roy
She lispingly said, did prim Bercyl Joy.
I saw some old elesunts and a big bear
And lots more fings in pens ober dere,,
I saw some old wolfs, dey looks like dey's dogs,
And teeny-weeny pigs, 'ey is called Guinea hogs.
And lots of more fings I don't know what's their name
But you could see, "ey is there just the same,
There was some fings in a cage," she prattled on thus,
"I don't know what dey is but 'ey looks like us."
