For a June-time platoon of tardy loons
The round moon had risen far too soon,
So they flew up high
To get to July
Where cicadas still crooned a full-moon tune.
What a concert! While bullfrog played the bassoon
Raccoon beat time on a battered spittoon.
The loons laughed long
At every song
Till at last the moon swooned like a spent balloon.
Where does this leave us (and none too soon)?
With Hillary Price, of the weekly cartoon,
"With Orange, Rhymes"
Or, in past times,
With Disney's original "Loony Tunes."
