Annual Poetry Contest

The Zoo

By Shelby Koos  Sanford, FL
2002 Contest: First Place

Once there was a mouse
In my house.
So I got a cat,
For the mouse to chase.
But instead it ran around a vase.
I got a dog to catch the cat,
But instead it caught a bat.
Then I bought a lion or two.
They thought my house was a zoo.
I got an elephant to scare the lion,
But instead the elephant started cryin'.
Now my house is a zoo.
I don't know what to do.
Do you?
