If I Ran The Fish Zoo

If I Ran The Fish Zoo

Inspired by Dr. Seuss and all the exotic animals under the sea that resemble exotic animals in the zoo.

If I ran the zoo, and I think I will do,

my zoo would have all kinds of fish in it too!

A four-footed lion’s not much of a beast

but lion fish! Now that would be something at least!

A tiger is big and a tiger is loud

but my fish zoo would make all the little things proud

For it would be home to a shrimp of a cat

The “tiger shrimp” as a matter of fact.

A bumbling bee upon land you may see

buzzing by flowers as wild as can be.

But if you look down, deep under the sea

A bumble bee shrimp lives there, happy and free.

How could we forget, of course! Of course!

A zoo’s not complete without a miniature horse!

There’s some of those too in my undersea zoo

For the pygmy sea horse is part of the crew.

A zebra has stripes, as everyone knows

So of course my zoo will have one of those

but my zebra will also have claws and six feet

For a Zebra Crab I would fancy to meet!

And speaking of crabs, here’s one you should see

The orangutan crab will delight you and me.

A monkey with claws and long red hair,

Who knew all the animals living down there?

Surely a rhino should live in my zoo

I know just exactly the right thing to do.

A Rhinoceros Shrimp is the perfect solution

for my silly, watery, fish zoo revolution.

A Clown! A Clown!  I won’t let you down!

For my zoo will not let you leave with a frown!

The star of the show is a little Nemo!

the last thing you’ll see before you go.
