The Giraffe Poem

It appears that people keep finding my blog through search engines having searched for ‘The Giraffe Poem’. I feel that my review of Giraffe does not satisfy this search and, as such, feel that it is my duty to type up the poem. I did have it on a postcard which you can get free in all restaurants however I seem to have misplaced that. Therefore I have no option but to attempt to recite it from memory. Here it goes…

Every Giraffe knows that smiling is infectious.
You catch it like the flu,
Someone at Giraffe once smiled at me
And I started smiling too

I looked around the tables
And someone saw me grin,
And when he smiled, I realised
I’d passed it on to him!

I thought about my smile a lot
And realised all it’s worth.
A single smile like mine or yours
Can travel around the earth

So if you feel a smile begin,
Don’t leave it undetected.
Let’s start an epidemic, quick,
Let’s get the world infected!

I hope that this is correct and that you can all manage a smile when reading it. Any visit to Giraffe makes me smile.

    I am the original author of the poem that was modified from. Many have claimed it as their own and now some Giraffes have been added. It is all over the web with different names and authors claiming my work. It original title was A Smile For You.
