Tuxedo

A house like any other house,

A room like any other room,

A time like any other time

‘xcept for the penguins in suits.

 

One is the butler, brings champagne,

One’s for a hook to hang your coat,

One’s taking pictures, choosing frames

And one slides down a country road

On his soft belly, like penguins do.

 

One’s a wise man,

One’s got style – a green tuxedo –, one the while

Slurps beer from pints cut out of ice,

And one – to everyone’s surprise –

Wears hoodie and a pair of jeans.

 

How strange they look on a penguin!
