That old ad for an energy drink came to mind this morning – the one where the peppy zebra steps into a pond or lake or some body of water and gets snatched and pulled under by a crocodile. And just when you go ‘oh-noooo’ the zebra struts out with a predator’s skin handbag. Well, one remembrance led to another, to poet Ogden Nash and this childhood favorite, happily and frequently recited at home.
