 THE MOLE

Ever wonder what it must be like
to be a mole?
To spend a life-time down inside
a dark and dirty hole…?
 
With short,  fat legs and long thin nose
– all fur from head to tail,
he lives on creepy, crawly things
like beetles, worms and snails.
 
He cannot see the damage done
when he digs ‘cross your yard,
and yet it is quite visible
to ev’ryone come dawn.
 
So stomp his tunnels, set your traps
– he hasn’t got a prayer,
and scream so loud the ground vibrates
and curls his dirty hair.
 
He did not choose the life he leads
but does with what he’s got…
yet human nature leads mankind
to flat despise his lot.
 
Please show some admiration
for this poor hard-working guy…
and thank your lucky stars
God did not put us at his side.
