Does a Lizard Have a Gizzard?

Does a lizard have a gizzard?
Does a goat have a throat?
Do bees take tea with their honey?

Do horses get hoarse
If they neigh too much?
Why are monkeys so funny?

If a rooster lost his wattle,
Could he cock-a-doodle-doo?
Why does he need a comb?

Would a pony eat baloney?
Would he rather have hay?
Why do the buffalo roam?

When you smell a skunk,
Does he have bad breath?
Or did he eat some beans?

Are a toad’s many pimples
Merely inside-out dimples?
Do they help him to keep clean?

Are koi very shy?
Do yaks like to talk?
Do kiwis like to eat fruit?

Could a Greyhound dog
Beat a Greyhound bus?
Does a duck swim better than a coot?

Does an elephant know
What another is saying
When he hasn’t spoken a word?

When bears hibernate,
Do they ever wake up?
Is a loon an intelligent bird?

Does a Lizard Have a Gizzard? by 

Just a fun little poem aimed at children. Questions, questions, questions!

FEATURED in Writing: Pursuing Happiness, March 19, 2012

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
