Alice Visits the Zoo
c2015 Min Lin
.... One day Alice did not know what to do, so she decided to go to the zoo.  She wore her favorite blue dress and sweater and with handbag in hand left for the zoo.  It was such a beautiful spring day and the sun very warm so she decided to walk to the zoo.  Oh my, this is fun to see such wild beasts in cages imprisoned for life for us humans to see. Alice walked down the wooden path, using her hand to hold the wood rail, past the Elephant, the Tiger, the Lion and posed in front of those ghastly Rhinoceroses.  They smelled like their bath tub that was too small to take a bath.  Even behind them the Giraffe seems to complain of their smell by bobbing his long neck and head up and down in disgust. Why they must weigh a ton thought Alice.  How can one ever lift one into a proper bathtub? Alice had enough of the smell of the barnyard so she left the zoo...


愛麗絲參觀動物園
....有一天,愛麗絲不知道該怎麼辦,所以她決定去動物園。她穿著她最喜歡的藍色連衣裙和毛衣,手拿手提包離開了動物園。它是這樣一個美麗的春日,陽光很溫暖,所以她決定步行到動物園。噢,我的,這是有趣的看到被困生活對我們人類看到籠子這種猛獸。愛麗絲走下木棧道,用她的手握住木鐵路,過去的大象,老虎,獅子和那些可怕的犀牛前面提出的問題。他們聞起來像他們的沐浴拖船太小,洗澡。即使他們身後的長頸鹿,似乎抱怨他們的嗅覺乘著他的長脖子和頭部上下厭惡。為什麼必須權衡一噸愛麗絲想。怎樣才能不斷提升一成合適的浴缸?愛麗絲過足了稗的氣味使她離開了動物園....
