Artist v. Wildebeest: The Poem

I've never seen a dotted gnu,
Nor one bedecked with flowers
Unless, of course, the ones I've seen
Emerge from "happy hours."

Regardless, though, there's one I've viewed
Transforming from the haze
Of Tomie's blog. He's painting it!
You'd really be amazed!

So all of you who like to see
Your animals "extraordinaire,"
Check out the gnu; he/she is great!
I've ne'er seen one so fair!
