There was once a giraffe named Debra
Whose anomaly was a short vertebra
To add to her gripes
Were her techno stripes
Oh my gosh, she was actually a zebra!
21st of June, the longest day in the Northern Hemisphere, is celebrated as World Giraffe Day. The finishing stitches in poor confused Debra were put it today. Both she and I got hugely excited at the co-incidence; only to belatedly realize that she was actually a zebra.
Here’s to techno stripes, being any colour of the rainbow we want, and reaching for the stars – vertebrae length be damned!
