ECHIDNA


Sitting in front of the fire tonight,
Wondering what excitement happens tonight,
Watching my dogs through the night,
Knowing their looking for a fight,
Admiring the quite through the night,
All of a sudden a small dark shadow appears in the night &
I notice the shadow has spikes,
As the spikes appear it becomes clear,
That a echidna has appeared in the night,
Watching the echidna wonder through the night,
All of a sudden my dogs want to fight the echidna tonight,
As my dogs bite down on the echidna tight,
The echidna rolls into a ball of spikes,
As i approach the fight to stop my dogs hurting the echidna tonight,
I notice the blood from the fight,
But i notice the echidna is alright,
It's the dogs blood from the mouth full of spikes,
Now it has become clear that the echidna has nothing to fear.
