31 days: Terrence


Terrence the tapir isn’t too big
he’s not quite an elephant, not quite a pig.
In deep jungle forests he snuffles and hunts
eating a ton of green leafage for lunch.

He’s a night-watch nocturnal –
he eats in the dark,
but here’s his great talent on which to remark:
He walks underwater on riverbeds deep,
munching on weeds and escaping from heat.

And when he’s had plenty of greens to swallow
he’ll roll in a mudbath and happily wallow!
