Animal Adventure Park New York Today
April the Giraffe
Is expecting a new calf.
So the internet goes wild
Watching for her child.
Now everyone thinks they're a Vet
To this creature they have never met.
Let's all leave the "zoo-ing"
To those who know what they're doing.
Her keepers are smart
And schooled in the art
Of birthing this calf
I'm quite sure everyone's "expert"opinions give them a good laugh.
We are all blessed to be a part
Of this wondrous event.
So, take my advice
Behave & play nice.
Just enjoy the glimpse
And maybe next we can watch the chimps!
Good Luck April & Oliver.
We've watched the eagles nesting for days,
The egg that got hatched,
And the one that was scratched,
And we've learned that our joking helps with the wait
Who can resist? We've learned how to play–
And now here's a giraffe
So reluctant to labor,
We've decided it's all just
Another egg caper.
So we're joining #teamegg
As we've waited and waited
We've eggspected so long
And believing that finally
An egg will appear,
We're really quite willing
To give a team cheer!
So hip-hip teamegg
For all the egg yolks,
The eggsperts' opinions,
And egged-on egg pokes.
While not quite eggzactly
Informing to folks,
Still it's been so much fun
To hear the egg jokes.
And at least we've not wasted
ALL of our time,
As we've been eggnertained,
By the egg-nerdy lines,
And even succumbed
To making egg rhymes.
An Evening Sun reporter, just gave us a “thumbs down”,
Said we needed to spend our time on important things, around town!
Well, I am so tired of listening to all of the news,
So tired of the lies and the slanted views!
We have listened to this garbage for more than a year,
Then I found something good, in our own Southern Tier!
Thank you so much for a GREAT distraction,
April’s live web cam, is a wonderful attraction!
It has been so much fun to watch you all share,
The love and the info of April’s great care!
We have watched her become a great “big ham”,
Sticking out her tongue at the live web cam.
It breaks up the waiting and makes us laugh,
While we all anticipate… the birth of her calf!
So thank you new friends for all that you do,
For the “giraffe education”, we have all learned from you.
When this over and the web cam comes down,
The smile on my face will become a big frown!
So here’s to the staff and all of the crew,
For sharing with us and letting us view!
April did you know,
At the beginning of this quest,
That the world would be watching,
That we would be obsessed?
Did you know we would 'chat'
All through the night,
Making guesses and wagers…
Who would be right?
Did you know we would annoy
The moderators and staff,
"When is she due?"
"Where is the calf?"
April the Giraffe and Taj
Did you know that you and Oliver
Would bring a sort of unity?
From the far east to the far west,
A perfect opportunity…
For the world to learn more
About this creature called "Giraffe",
Through social media,
Video and photograph.
Did you know we would adore
Your keepers, staff and zoo,
And secretly wish
We were one of the crew?
That 'sideways heart' on your neck
Right where God painted it,
Of all of your markings,
Seems to be the favorite.
The way you use that leg for balance…
The way you toss your hay…
It doesn't need to be explained;
It's simply "April's way".
Did you know you'd be the topic
Of daily conversation…
A long awaited advocate
For giraffe conservation?
Did you know you would cause the world
To laugh, cry and giggle?
As we watched your belly grow and grow,
Each kick and every jiggle?
Did you know that we'd be curious
About the cud you chew,
Your hay and water source,
Your pee…and your poo?
There would be so many questions
For your handlers and Veterinarian…
"Will she get an epidural?"
"Will she need a cesarean?"
For our ignorance, please accept
A heartfelt apology.
May we always remember these lessons
Of Love and Giraffology.
Forgive us for our scrutinizing,
For our glances, gawks and stares,
But please accept our best wishes,
Our hopes and our prayers.
So beautiful April, tall and brave,
Your little one will be here soon.
We wish you well and don't forget,
We love you to the moon!
