Kangaroo Peekaboo

A young kangaroo

Played peekaboo

With a Koala Bear

Hiding inside

Her momma's pouch

So when the bear peeked

She wasn't there


But the years they flew

And the kanga she grew

It became more difficult for her to hide

With her own little joey

Inside her front pocket

Who'd also come along for the ride


A Russian doll

Of marsupials

Was too much for the old grand 'roo

So her daughter hopped out

Gave up her game

And found something else to do


But not the bear

He's still playing

That old game of peekaboo

Except now when it plays

It passes its days

With a new young kangaroo.
