And Where Do You Hide a Stolen Giraffe?

And where do you hide a stolen giraffe?
Do you install it in the park
And tell children it is a slide?
Or do you exhibit only its eyes and tail
And tell people it is a cow?
Perhaps, because of its cobblestone coloring,
You could camouflage it as a city street.
You certainly couldn't keep it
In the back yard
For the neighbors would know
You were harboring a stolen giraffe.
Don't you see?
They would notice that
The tall trees were being denuded
And the shrubs were disappearing.
The remaining middle stuff would make it
So obvious!
