Afternoon Delight

Nice, well written.  Getting the rhythm and rhyme to come together naturally, and with a point to make, without sounding at all forced is not an easy task.

Cute, funny, topical.  Great poem.  Casting my vote for the Orang-utans too.  And rainforests.  And continued life on Earth and so forth....
