 REDDIT ME:      


  Panda Moanium. A children's poem by Australian poet Graeme King - a panda bear has a moan about life at the zoo. ©kingpoetry2007.


I'm black and white, it isn't right...

I'd rather pink or green;

or maybe several shades of red

with yellow in between?


I eat bamboos and live in zoos

they feed me every day;

the people laugh and take my pic

I roll around and play.


My memories of life in trees

have faded dim with age;

And now I call it "Home sweet home"

my concrete Panda cage.


They send me mates in wooden crates

I think that's rather rude;

I'd rather be all by myself

and eat up all the food.


A bear with cheek was here last week

she said: "I'm Chi" and winked;

and then she broke the awful news

that soon we'll be extinct!


So if you choose to visit zoos

and see us Panda bears,

please wake me up if I'm asleep

and tell me someone cares!
