The Aye Aye is a primate
That lives in Madagascar
She lives in trees and won’t come down
No matter how nicely you ask her
She has big round yellow eyes
That are her torches in the night
They help her look for juicy bugs
That are hiding out of sight.
Tap tapping with her fingers long
She knocks on the trunks of trees
She’s quite polite and lady-like
And will enter with an “If you please”
But once she finds an insect horde
She quickly rips away the bark
Then she perches on a branch
To dine finely in the dark.
For fun she scampers all along
The branches of the trees
Her squirelly tail like a balancing rail
Helps her jump with perfect ease
And thats the tale of the oddity
That looks like a little bear
The Aye Aye with her shining eyes
That lives in Madagascar.
