HOP TILL YOU DROP

Two kangaroos stood in the blazing hot sun

      And talked about having to hop:

"Humans have cars and can travel at speed

      Whilst we kangas must hop till we drop."

 

The first kangaroo looked down at his feet:

     "And humans wear comfortable shoes.

Whilst I have no say about what I can wear,

     Those humans can pick and can choose."

 

His friend quickly said:  “Oh, you think about this:

    Those humans must go out to work

Whilst we kangas can just hop around in the sun.

    Well, surely that’s more of a perk."

 

"Those poor human children are sent off to school

      To learn how to write and to read.

No, the life of a kangaroo suits me just fine

     And we've everything here that we need."

 

A taxi arrived and stopped by these two

    And it’s hard to believe what I saw:

Instead of some humans getting inside -

    Yes, two kangaroos went through the door.
