Reptiles in a zoo,
More than just a few,
Thanks to a mistake,
Did from their house escape,
And as hither and thither,
They around did slither,
They everyone did aggravate,
And also panic did create.
But although the keepers tried,
Snakes everywhere did glide,
Till finally in despair,
A keeper did declare,
That if they would this problem mend,
They should for a lawyer send.
But when the others did object,
And threatened to his plan reject,
He did explain,
How he to this conclusion came.
For as the problem did their brains exceed,
What they did need,
Was one who did of reptile reek,
And with the snakes could speak.
