one woman zoo

I can
snap like a snappin' turtle
growl like a grizzly bear
prickle like a porcupine
squeeze like a boa
snort like a pig
bark like a dog
cluck like a hen
crow like a rooster
slither like a snake
hoot like an owl
chatter like a monkey
hop like a frog
wiggle like a worm
watch like a hawk
flutter like a butterfly
purr like a cat
nap like a lion
be quiet as a mouse
I am
a one woman zoo
though I can't
run like a cheetah
Can you?

Written because it suited my mood, a snappin' one. Some days are like that. *sigh*
I took a photograph of this sign on our Wisconsin vacation at the Milwaukee Zoo on August 5, 2009:

  1. Nope. But I am a one man farm; I can imitate quite a few farm animals very true to nature… Wanna hear?

    When my boys were young I loved singing, "Old McDonald Had A Farm" and doing all the animal sounds with them. My rooster crow is probably my best animal sound. I haven't tried to figure out the sound software discussed at John's page awhile back. Even if I did, I think I'd feel too silly to record myself crowing and post if for the world to hear, if they happened to stumble upon it at my Opera blog. ~ Janean

    😆 😀 I would love to hear you crow. I can do a great rooster too, and an awesome hen – especially one with chicks… You post yours, I'll post mine!

    Chuckling at your dare, Ben. Mmmmm-ay-be. We shall see. I do occasionally offer to crow to wake up my sleeping family. They quickly and adamantly declined my helpful suggestion. No chicken farmers in the bunch of them. ~ Janean
