Nosy Neighbours

The giraffe can keep no secrets
from her neighbours at the zoo,
for those nosy little fellows
always know what she’s up to.

You can see those nosy creatures,
throughout each day and night,
perched upright atop their stumps,
staring with all their might.

They see what time the giraffe wakes up
and all she has to eat,
and even when she does those plops
that land between her feet.

You’ll often hear the giraffe complain
of her lack of privacy.
‘Whose bright idea was it to put
those meerkats next to me?’

  1. I understand those giraffes! It would be fine if the put a higher wall in between the giraffes and the meerkats so the meerkats can’t see!


  2. I bet that it was very annoying for the giraffe. They watched the giraffe even when he was doing his personal things! No way! I like this poem but I wouldn’t like to be that giraffe otherwise how would I react? This poem makes me feel like laughing too and meerkats are nosy. The third paragraph was the funniest. Awesome Job on this poem!
