Critters That Rhyme
© - Tom Hyland - 2/24/10
“Aumpy” - “Bumpy” and “Crumpy”
were three male Tom-Kats -
dumped at a caring Animal Shelter.
“Dumpy” - “Eumpy” and “Frumpy”
were three female Kitty-Kats -
also abandoned there - Helter-Skelter.
“Grumpy” - “Humpy” and “Iumpy”
were three little male Puppy-Dogs -
that experienced a similar Fate.
“Jumpy” - “Klumpy” and “Lumpy”
were three cute female Pups -
that wound up at that same Gate.
“Mumpy” - “Numpy” and “Oumpy”
three colorful male Conures -
all flew in one day - looking for Food.
“Pumpy” - “Qumpy” and “Rumpty”
three similar female Birds -
of the same species - then joined the Brood.
“Stumpy” - “Trumpy” and “Umpy”
were three male Squirrels -
who already lived on the Premises.
“Vumpy” - “Wumpy” and “Xumpy”
their three sister Squirrels -
scampered all around - like Dervishes.
“Yumpy” and “Zumpy”
the two Human Shelter Operators -
gathered together all - and formed a Chorus.
And then they Exclaimed -
as they called out each Name -
“You Twenty-Four Critters -
Will Never Ever - Bore-Us!”
