Stephanie & Rachelle, Milwaukee County Zoo, Milwaukee
The monkeys stand for honesty, giraffes are insincere,
And the elephants are kindly but they’re dumb.
Orangutans are skeptical of changes in their cages,
And the zookeeper is very fond of rum
Zebras are reactionaries, antelopes are missionaries,
Pigeons plot in secrecy and hamsters turn on frequently.
What a gas! You gotta come and see at the zoo
~ At the Zoo, Simon & Garfunkel
I love this song about the Central Park Zoo and was reminded of it Sunday morning when we went to the Milwaukee County Zoo. My brother’s family has a membership to the Zoological Society of Milwaukee so they go to the zoo as often as they can. I believe this is the first zoo I’ve been to since 2001. Back then I had a membership in the Zoological Society of San Diego and used to go to the San Diego Zoo & the Wild Animal Park often.
