  My Poems  

Jenny, Jack, and John

A poem by Beverly Stock.

Their size of parts do not match

With great big pointed ears

Their hair is short a forelock

Their voices gruff and weird.


A female’s called a Jenny

An intact male’s called Jack

A snipped male is called a John

With small tails, that’s a fact.


Mix with a striped Zebra’s stock,

Real sweet, but sterile too

Then that makes a new Zedonk

Let’s just leave the gene pools.


If you haven’t guessed it yet,

Whether Jennys or Jacks,

John, the Donkey is my pet

Think 20 Mule Team Borax.
