Staten Island Chuck the Groundhog Lives (Limerick)

There’s been a Groundhog Day rules change at the Staten Island Zoo, in the wake of last year’s groundhog death at the klutzy hands of Mayor Bill de Blasio:

Staten Island Chuck the Groundhog Lives (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Seems the zoos of New York had their fill
Of Mayor-caused Groundhog Day-kill.
Last year’s groundhog is dead,
So “no holding,” they said.
“We are Chucking your touching rights, Bill.”

    Jimmy the Groundhog is pushing for change in Wisconsin as well:

    In Sun Prairie, Wis, there’s a player
    Who elevates things up a layer.
    If you want something done,
    Ask their groundhog–the one
    That I’ve heard has the ear of the Mayor!

    Staten Island: the groundhog’s named Chuck;
    See him busily earning his buck
    Meanwhile watching for Bill
    Moving in for the kill:
    Chuck’s determined: “groundHOG” not “ground CHUCK”!
