A Poem a Day 2015 (18): Furs and stripes

Okay, I'm not sure where this one came from. Some five-minute Sunday craziness, but with a serious message. Cheers :) 

Furs and stripes

Cats in tall hats
Doggies in scarves
Nothing is achieved
Doing it by halves

Fish in pink bras
Or did you say bars?
Does it make sense
Looking out of jars?

Gnus in fancy skirts
Antelopes in heels
Am I dreaming this up?
Know how this feels?

Llamas being farmers
Pigs playing a console game
Now that bit is a true story
They can, babe – it’s not lame

Rabbits head out all fluffy
Bears dress in warm fur
This is how it’s meant to be –
Never to be worn by her

Penguins opt for sharp suits
Smarter than the naked chimps
Or so they like to think
For we know they’re no blimps

Tigers roam in orange stripes
While snakes twist and shake
Ever leaving their skins behind
On a handbag it just looks fake

Whales enhance their blue-grey
With barnacle accessories
Singing songs from the deep
Surely that’s the bees’ knees?
