Rowena Hyena scoffed, “That’s just a rumour
Who says that our species has no sense of humour?
We find death so funny we’re always heard laughing
While bucking or gnuing or even giraffing
The mere sight of ugliness sets us heehawing
We look in the mirror and can’t help guffawing
Our hind legs are short not because they are stronger
Our funny-bones’ size makes our forelegs much longer.”
