penguin songIn Praise of Penguins

Robin Bernard

These funny birds in fancy clothes 
may waddle in the snow, 
but when they reach the icy sea 
Just watch how fast they go!

Their song sounds like a donkey's bray, 
they cannot soar or fly, 
yet penguins manage very well,
and let me tell you why...

Their feathers keep out water, 
their blubber keeps out cold, 
their wings make perfect paddles 
because they do not fold!

Their tails are good for steering, 
they brake with both their feet- 
So tell me now, from all you've heard...
Aren't penguins NEAT?
