A Fish Known As June
by Jean Saunders 

There once was a fish known as June 
Who sang all her songs out of tune. 
It seemed very odd 
That this musical cod 
Could make even shrimp want to swoon.

A Lizard Named Lizzy
by Mary Ann Thurmond 

There one was a lizard named Lizzie
Who always ran in a tizzy.
She circled so fast
That her head came in last
And her nickname was Lizzy the Dizzy.

The Mockingbird
by Dale Jones 

Last night I saw a mockingbird
On a light pole looking absurd.
He sang so loud
Cuz he was proud
The latest egg was the third.
