The Ant
   
The ant has made himself illustrious
Through constant industry industrious.
So what?
Would you be calm and placid
If you were full of formic acid?

The Cow   
   
The cow is of the bovine ilk;
One end is moo, the other, milk.

The Turtle
   
The turtle lives 'twixt plated decks
Which practically conceal its sex.
I think it clever of the turtle
In such a fix to be so fertile .

The Wasp
   
The wasp and all his numerous family
I look upon as a major calamity.
He throws open his nest with prodigality,
But I distrust his waspitality.

The Cuckoo

Cuckoos lead Bohemian lives,
They fail as husbands and as wives,
Therefore they cynically disparage
Everybody else's marriage

The Fly
   
God in his wisdom made the fly
And then forgot to tell us why.

The Eel

I don't mind eels
Except as meals.

The Duck
   
Behold the duck.
It does not cluck.
A cluck it lacks.
It quacks. quacks.
It is specially fond
Of a puddle or pond.
When it dines or sups,
It bottoms ups.

The Camel

The camel has a single hump;
The dromedary , two;
I'm never sure.
Are you?

The Pig

The Pig, if I am not mistaken,
Supplies us sausage, ham, and Bacon..
Let others say his heart is big,
I think it stupid of the Pig.

The Ostrich

The ostrich roams the great Sahara.
Its mouth is wide, its neck is narra.
It has such long and lofty legs,
I'm glad it sits to lay its eggs.

The Centipede

I objurgate the centipede,
A bug we do not really need.
At sleepy-time he beats a path
Straight to the bedroom or the bath.
You always wallop where hes not,
Or, if he is, he makes a spot.

The Shrimp

A shrimp who sought his lady shrimp
Could catch no glimpse
Not even a glimp.
At times, translucence
Is rather a nuisance.
