The giraffe can keep no secrets from her neighbours at the zoo,
for those nosy little creatures always know what she’s up to.
You’ll see her little neighbours all throughout each day and night,
upright atop their tree stump, staring back with all their might.
They note the time that she awakes and all she has to eat
and even when she does those plops that land between her feet.
Giraffe will often loudly moan her lack of privacy,
‘Whose bright idea was it to put those meerkats next to me?’

I like giraffes and meerkats, but, my brother likes giraffes more, so I like giraffes more as well! I also liked this poem because I love the zoo!
I love the zoo too!
This poem was hilarious !!! Those naughtily cute meerkats can’t a giraffe get some privacy while doing his business??? I love meerkats they are soooo cute and naughty !!! Love you poems can’t wait to read another one soon!!!!
The meerkats used to live next to the giraffes at the Adelaide Zoo. I felt sorry for them.
This poem contained a lot of humour and was very fun to read. You have painted the image of the scene that you are trying to create very clearly through your description and overall, this was a great poem.
Thank you for your thoughtful comment. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I wrote the poem about the Adelaide Zoo- the giraffes used to live next to the meerkats there.
That was a great poem! It had humour. I loved that you gave the giraffes say at the end.
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! How did you come up with the idea for this poem?
At the Adelaide Zoo, the meerkats used to be next to the giraffes.
I really likes this poem because I think it actually reflects on the actual animals e.g Meerkats are always standing on their toes so it looks like they’re gossiping. I think i would give this poem a three and a half because i think you could add in some more animals.
Three and a half out of what?
Hmm Three and a half out of five
i loved that poem so much thank you creating these amazing poems.
You are welcome, Tharuja!
I really liked the poem
Meerkats are one of my favourite animals
I like meerkats too.
i like them too kristi and mia
I love your poems.
can I ask you a question.
from where do you get those amazing ideas?
Thanks! I get my ideas from all around me. This one was at the zoo, when the meerkats used to be next to the giraffe, and I felt sorry for the giraffe being stared at all the time.
I would like to have nosy neighbour too!I love that poem.
Is this what experience if yes I’m lucky I don’t have noisy neighbours.
For a long time, the meerkats were next to the giraffe at the Adelaide Zoo. Have you seen meerkats?
Is this your experience? I am lucky I dont have noisy neighbours.
This is not my experience, it is the giraffe and the meerkats at the Adelaide Zoo.
Very funny! Meerkats always look like they’re listening to private conversations.
There is a Peppa Pig video called ‘ The noisy family’ I think. It is about how the cousin’s little brother reacts at night.
I think lots of families are noisy and nosy!
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!
That sounds like a good idea.
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!
I’m glad you like the poem. I like how much you wrote about it- you were obviously thinking a lot!
Same happens to me.
I don’t have nosy neighbours but my sister Thisama is annoying!
I’m sure she’s not!
Of course I’m not!
