Animals hate pessimism


Lament to a Hippopotamus

he’ll crush you with a stomp.

Grumble to an Alligator

you’ll end up in the swamp!

Fuss and fickle to a Buffalo

and his horns will do the talking.

Whinge and whine to a Vulture

and you’ll be the one that he’ll be stalking!

You see, common to all animals

(made by the Great Technician)

is an intolerance of, a hatred for

plain and simple pessimism!

That’s why migration was started

(with this fact many zoologists do cower)

not for food or to search for habitat

but to ditch the downers!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
