How doth the big, black rat
Improve his healthy gut?
By scavenging food around the flat
From fuzzy cheese to rotten nut!
How craftily he sculpts his nest
How noisily he spreads the trash
And cares not about the mess
Only munching his scrappy stash!
How doth the slow, gray pigeon
Improve his mating luck?
By approaching tails most forbidden
With an odd and awkward strut!
How rarely he preens his feathers
How lazily he spreads his wings
And in any kind of weather
An awful cooing is how he sings!
