The Mongoose - Poem by Robert Charles Howard

Of all the creatures on the loose
there's none to match the odd mongoose
with pointed snout and chops a lickin'
for a tasty meal of snake or chicken.

Oh, there's some who think him just a meercat
who'd snatch your omelette just like that
but when he's feeling really blue
he'll munch on a critic (maybe two) .
