Chats with Chipmunks
“Can you hear me now? Good.”

My Cousin Chats with Chipmunks

My cousin chats with chipmunks.
He utters words to cows.
He’ll jabber with a gibbon
and shares the cat’s meows.

He’ll chatter with chimpanzees,
or verbalize with dogs.
He’s eloquent with emus,
and chews the fat with frogs.

He lectures lines of llamas.
He’ll yack with any sloth.
With gnus he’ll choose to gossip.
He’ll mumble at a moth.

Although he speaks to creatures,
I find it most absurd
that when it comes to people
he’s never said a word.
