Moe



Totally Optional Prompts: The first giraffe in France arrived in Paris on June 30, 1827. Gosh, I wonder what that was like. And, I wonder what is like that.






Moe, best man
at owners' wedding,
swapped his cage
for forest.
A potty-trained mid-age chimp,
Moe still hunts Charmin.



Missing Moe

I suspect the woodland chicadees and seagulls are as surprised to see a mannerly chimp in their neck of the woods as the French were to meet their first giraffe.
