Rhino Snow Time - Lincoln Park Zoo

What does a rhino fam'ly do
During winter in Chicago,
Outside in the Lincoln Park Zoo?
Spend quality time in the snow.
More than a foot of snow to romp.
All together, we plow right in,
A crisp refreshing treat to chomp,
Clinging like whiskers to the chin.
Back in Africa, our kind
Don't have the opportunity
For such fam'ly affair to find.
We're lucky to be where we be.

Guess who got made becuz of us -
Frosty the Snow Rhinoceros!

Cubbie Clark

First time ever, Chicago Cubs
Get a Cubs official mascot.
Hope tiz not one of hiring flubs
That's kept a World Series win - not.
A cartoonish young bear named Clark,
(One of the streets, Wrigley Field's on.)
Will this new mascot be the spark
To make the curse to lose be gone?
Jersied but pantless (not obscene) .
'Purists' prob'ly will make a flap
That the uniform does demean.
Clark is wearing a backwards cap.

A winning team? Take any chance,
Even a mascot with no pants.

Crowned Lemurs Like Lincoln Park Zoo

A crowned lemur - that's what I am,
An orangish fur crown on my head.
For visitors, I love to ham
At the Lincoln Park Zoo homestead.
Madagascar Island is where
We primates did evolve unique.
But when human kin showed up there,
They've been a real pain - so to speak.
But at the Zoo, humans are great
To me and to my family.
All lemurs should have such a fate,
To know how good humans can be.

So this crowned lemur tips his crown
To humans in Chicago town.

Go For A Walk

Nik Wallenda, King of the Wire,
Chose Chicago to take a walk
'Twixt and 'tween the twin corncob spire,
Marina Towers. Wind would knock
Against big shoulders daring to
Keep balance 'cross a hundred feet,
Hundreds of feet below in view
Of one misstep and death to meet.
A massive audience watched live,
The city and the world held breath.
Would or would not the will survive?
Nik once more walked away from death.

A first awesome sight to behold,
Walking the wire with a blindfold.
