Kangaroos

If a person has four babies
you would call them all quadruplets.
If a kangaroo does likewise
should you call them kangaruplets?

And there’s something else I wonder,
that could use illuminating,
When a kangaroo is thinking
is it kangaruminating?

If you baked a kangaroo a pie
and shaped it like a boomerang
would it be best with whipping cream
or maybe kangaroo meringue?

I’ve got so many questions,
I just don’t know what to do.
I guess perhaps I’ll have to go
and ask a kangaroo.
