When There’s A Fire In The Jungle by Martin Honeysett

When there’s a fire in the jungle,

They call the Elephant Brigade,

Who race with their trunks full of water,

To the place that has to be sprayed.

But if the fire is a big one,

It happens as often as not,

That the elephants drink all the water,

To stop themselves getting too hot.

Sometimes It’s Better By Bus… by Mike Harding

Why does the hirsute chimpanzee

Swing pendulous from tree to tree?

He thinks it probably less fuss

Than waiting for the hippopotabus.

And yet the hungry anaconda

Through the trees is known to wander

Though the jungle bus is often late

It’s better than being ate.
