    Reviews the various animals brought to the Zoological Society Gardens by the Zoological Society, suggesting that the Regent's Park will grow to be a fashionable place with birds and beasts as well as humans. The last stanza reads: 'Would a mammoth could be found / And made across the sea to swim! / But now, alas! upon the ground / The bones alone are left of him: / I fear a hungry mammoth too, / (So monstrous and unquiet he,) / By hunger urged might eat the Zo- / Ological Society!'
