Description

Welcome to my silly dilly

take on ABC

It's lots of fun and really odd,

as you will quickly see

For they're no "leaping lizards" here

No "bears that bounce a ball"

In fact, these zany critters have

never been seen at all!

So turn the page and cast a gaze

on this menagerie,

but don't forget the beasts within

were all made up by me!

-- Tiny DiTerlooney
