Ode to a 'possum
With his hairless tail and pointy nose,
I wish that this 'possum would watch where he goes.
Not up my stairs,
And not on my chairs,
And not on my bench with his claw-tipped toes.
No 'possum I've seen has ever played dead,
they always turn 'round and hiss instead
So I back away slow
And let this breaux go
But next time I may put a knot on his head!
[Note to Brian: See, we do have opossums on the island! And you're welcome to mine with his two-toned tail, cowlicks, and snarky-looking nose. ]
