**The zebra went on safari,**

**He really loved to holiday in the Sun,**

**But when he saw the size of the rhinocerous,**

**He turned around and came back home !**

**The zebra pitched up his tent,**

**He noticed that the snakes were truly bent.**

**On safari, the zebra took a ride in a jeep**

**(Because there were only three tyres,**

**The tickets were cut – price and cheap !).**

**The zebra on safari, took snapshot pictures of the ****jungle,**

**He was hungry that he ate his picnic quick,**

**And had to go find some mushroom fungal.**

**On safari, the zebra met a lion,**

**Who asked him if he had some stripy socks he ****could try on.**

**The chimpanzee came to tea every day,**

**Wishing the zebra a happy holiday away. “Will ****you come back next week too ?”**

**(The tickets are selling three for the price of two).**
