Another Limerick

Someone has asked for another limerick. I shall for the moment continue the alphabetical animal series. Let me see; we had reached 'N', so the conventions of the Emglish alphabet dictate that 'O' should be next:

‘Don’t expect me,’ said the Owl,
‘to mix with day-birds, cheek by jowl.
I come out at night;
Edward Lear was quite right:
the owl is an elegant  fowl.’

Will that do?
