Zap! It’s a Zorse!
(posted for the A to Z Challenge)
Z is for Zap … and Zorse.
Well, zikes! Gadzooks! That’s not a horse!
What is that creature? It’s a zorse!
A zorse? What, say you, could that be –
This creature that begins with “Z”?
This little equid in his stripe
Belongs to an unlikely type.
His lineage is quite a mix
Of horse and zebra, just for kicks.
