An Ode to Mulga the Gorilla
Mulga was a gorilla the colour of aqua blue
He painted at day and at night he ate mung bean stew
He enjoyed a bread roll with his nightly stew
Lightly toasted with lots of butter oozing like goo
He cultivated his beard like a garden so green
T'was a magnificent thing with a glisten and gleam
Some said it was magical others said it was gross
But no-one denied it was hairier than most
But the truth of the matter is that it was a special beard
It had magical arty abilities, I know it sounds weird
Once he fell asleep while making a sketch
And when he awoke his beard had painted the rest
From that day on that's how he made all of his art
The beard would finish the piece of which he would start
