Well as giraffes say, you don’t get no leaves unless you stick your neck out. (Sid Waddell)

Its nose is long, its teeth are big, 
for  tearing leaves , on which to feast „ 
Its horns are like round rubber stamps; 
a haughty, bureaucratic beasts 

The ancients found it very strange 
and called it the camelopard; 
indeed, to, spot it among trees, 
can often prove extremely hard. 

It has a useful turn of speed 
when chased by lions across the veldt 
and, with its lanky legs, can give 
pursuing predators a belt. 

But the giraffe is at a loss 
at water-holes because, to sup 
it nearly has to do the splits; 
an awkward case of bottoms up.'
