A humorous poem between animals Contest Winner 
"Things that really get my goat." Poor sheep exclaimed; about to vote.
"Is when reviews are rated low by those who have no work to show.
I do respect their point of view, but bugger me! I know a few
whose meagre stars simply convey. 'No understandy what you say.'
Well fair enough, let me explain, for you alone have this disdain.
And so I write and show how come I wrote the haiku without fun.
A syllable is what it is. The count of three is in this quiz -> SYLL-AB-LE <-

'Meters' are not slot machines!
And nor are 'naani's'  wolverines!
A 'sonnet' ain't just lines of slush!
There's passion there, and love; I blush."

Just then the kangaroo showed up, all bleary eyed, his pocket stuffed
with pointless stars and bits of fluff. "How-dy do!" He slowly slurred.
"He's really pissed!" Exclaimed the bird. "I know he is." Said Roo "I heard."
"Not him" said sheep"It's you I meant.. Look at your feathers! Brown and bent."

"My feathers! "Scratched the kangaroo."Not yours." Said Goat, "It isn't you."
"My feathers thanks are neatly pressed against my proud protruding breast!"
Spelled owl who carried, whizzing past, ideas exploding from his arse.
"See you all in class." He winked " And don't forget to bring some ink!"
Kanga cracked another beer, a smile appeared from ear to ear. 

"Forgive me if I bark-aloud," said dog who parked beside the crowd.
"But hearing what you have to say, I think you've lost the plot today."

Then whale began her gentle song, in dulcet tones she swam along,
till all the beasts from here and there, just hugged each other's teddy bear.
"Rabbit, stop that snoring please and snake, keep still and bend your knees.
And guys, remember when we wake, don't forget to separate."
