Speedy and Jerome (2022 Poem 10)


Speedy Gonzalez loves to run and play
He is always first to laugh
But what he loves best in all the world
Is playing tag with Jerome the giraffe

Jerome’s long legs take him far
He loves to hide in the trees
Speedy is short yet runs so fast
When he walks he looks like John Cleese

His big dark eyes and gentle smile
Hide a mischievous mind
Speedy Gonzalez only has three toes
That sloth is one of a kind

(Prompt: Personify an animal. Switch its trait. Example: a disinterested lion, a polite gorilla, an aggressive giraffe…)
