T’was a night in the Jungle and all through the queue The lines were all closed the lower part too. The botes were all docked, the tours all done. We turned off the engines  and unloaded the guns. The skippers all gathered in the shipping office once more. To put things away and complete all their chores When what to our listening ears did we hear? Noises and music and a party out there. Away to the dock, but what could it be? All we could see were some Ducks and some trees. The moon on the leaves of  Monstera deliciosa Caused us to not even notice the spiders so grossa. Into a bote the skippers did scurry watching our head and our step as we hurried We balanced the bote to make sure  it won’t tip Then all  looked at the lead, He said “Hit it Skip” Into the Jungle our tramp steamer did chug Into the rain forest filled with all the humbugs. But wait, they were gone the creatures there were missing No tiger leaping, no Cobras were hissing. No Ginger snapping no gators were sunning No elephants bathing but the shower was running. No Squirter squirting something was wrong The camp was all empty but the Jeep’s lights were on. As we turned right at the falls as we all forced a smile The skippers were worried but all in de-Nile. Our fears grew worse as we saw up ahead The veldt was empty, except one Zebra that’s dead. No Safari was trapped. No hippos to scare. They were all gone but we did not know where. But wait! Up ahead! In head hunter land We hear the sounds of a head banger band We turn the corner and what do we see? A Holiday Party all through the trees. The Gnu and Giraffes and gzebras were there. And the natives doing a bit of Shakespeare The mammals, birds reptiles and fish Had gathered to make a Holiday wish. “peace on Earth” they wish would come true. For all of God’s creatures (an Zebras too) Don’t take it for granite the jungle was rocking. But we were low on fuel this bote needed docking. What a sight we had witnessed on this Christmas Eve. Amazing things happen when Skippers believe. Back on the dock we all stopped  to hear it The sounds from the Jungle, true Christmas spirit. Then the Lead said as he picked up the mic “Merry Christmas to all, and to the Jungle, good night”
