Room Service

Poem By Ima Ryma

I went to Jungle Jamboree,
And booked a room in a hotel.
I asked for a view so to see
All flora and fauna real well.
I also asked for ceiling high,
So that I would not bump my head,
Cuz I am a very tall guy.
The ceiling was okay, but instead
I got windowless bamboo wall,
And apologies from the staff.
It was this room or none at all,
'So, so sorry, Mr. Giraffe.'

Soon I'll have a room with a view,
Cuz I'll chew right through this bamboo.
