A buzz was flying around the Impossible Zoo,

the Liger heard it and told the Rhinosangaroo,

he told the Eligiraffe and the Flamingazelle,

and Panthopotomus passed it along as well.


It seemed the latest professor was too hard to take,

he'd scared the Camelaphant and the Bufflasnake,

the Zebrodile and the Pumouse started to rage,

so Pandiguana called everyone into his cage.


The Beavadillo walked in with the Pussamapeke,

then Llamaburro demanded that somebody speak,

so Pumancobra then cleared his throat with a roar,

and everybody was hushed - even Badgerabore.


"We're clones - experiments from the Impossible Zoo,

just freaks of someone's imagination it's true,

the Zoo has been like a Mother and given us life,

two animals made into one with the flick of a knife."


"We know about that," said Sheepard, "but what about now?"

"She's right, this new guy's all wrong" replied Lobstamacow,

"Last night he was laughing aloud, and terribly drunk,

and tried to filletatize poor Crocadamonk!"


A gasp arose from the crowd of impossible pets,

a double weldamatizing - as bad as it gets,

and where would all of it stop? What did the man want?

A Lizardingoctocpandarmadiguanelephant?



"I move a motion," said Eaglemur, "let's vote!

I know that Horsapahog has a very nice boat,

let's sail away to somewhere that's lovely and warm!"

They sailed and drowned in a very impossible storm.
