P...P...Pick Up A Penguin

Pete's a Patagonian penguin,

A Paddling, perky bird.

Peacefully plodding on pack ice,

And peculiarly absurd.

_

Pete is plump and piebald,

He preys on prawns for lunch.

He's a predator of prodigious power,

And packs a powerful punch.

_

Pete's pride are his pale pink pyjamas,

They're pretty, and patterned with plants.

He poses in polka dot plimsoles,

And posh pleated purple pants.

-

Pete's got a pen pal called Percy,

He's a potty perverted pest.

He pecks and picks on petrel chicks,

Pulls puffins off their nests.

_

So if you want to p...p...pick up a penguin

Be prepared for a 'Percy' or 'Pete',

'Cus your perception of penguin perfection,

Could be walloped by waddling feet!
