Maku - Lincoln Park Zoo

A black rhino, Maku's the name.
Not really black, more reddish brown.
Endangered species - that's a shame.
But I'm safe in Chicago town.
I've been wooing Kapuki girl.
The humans keep checking her poop,
Hoping that this romantic whirl
Will bring a wee one to the Loop.
I'm used to humans all around.
They are a species I study.
Smart and dumb, both together wound,
But not endangered like I be.

Carry the hope is what I do.
Right here at the Lincoln Park Zoo.

Harbor Seal - Lincoln Park Zoo

'Twas time to come to Chicago,
So this harbor seal hit the road,
Hitchhiked from Sea World, doncha know!
Blessings upon me were bestowed.
Nice folks gave me wetted down rides.
At last to my new home I got.
Folks can visit my many sides.
I get attention - tanks a lot.
For 20 plus minutes I can
Stay in an underwater place,
Looking for seafood in my scan
To feed my so cute whiskered face.

I like Lincoln Park Zoo for real,
My flipper shake to seal the deal.

Lake Michi - Gone

Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes
Have ups and downs since glacier day.
But thanks to human made mistakes,
Lake Michigan will go away.
Fresh water will soon become rare.
Those with the power will seek to
Use up the Great Lakes and not care
What holes are left when they are through.
Water drained by technology,
Then across the world will be sold.
By human nature, this will be.
Fresh water will be the new gold.

The famous Chicago lake shore
Will soon touch a Great Lake no more.

Waggle and Jounce

Out on the lake
the whitecaps leap,
old lions shot in midair.
Not far from the water
I sit on a knoll
and open your letter.
You're in Sacramento now
singing for money.
Here in Chicago,
on hot August nights,
I lick in my dreams
at the scoops
in your shoulders.
I prefer them to ice cream.
In a week I'll fly out
and salute your nipples.
Long may your buttocks
waggle and jounce.
