|Here is a poem inspired by a plastic ostrich
from the "magic suitcase."
OSCAR'S ODD DAY
Oscar and Emily lived at the zoo.
They walked aound in a pair of two.
Oscar had a belly bloat.
He was so full he couldn't float.
His neck was so long
it could reach Hong Kong.
His tail was so short
it couldn't reach the port.
He dropped the eggs that Emily laid.
It made such a mess that they called in the maid.
