Right From Wrong
I am a wolf. It's fair to say
That I am just the kind you'd trust
If Riding Hood came down my way.
The fairy tale's unjust.
I am an elephant. I blub
To hear another species wail.
I do not drink to crooks. I snub
All those beyond my pail.
I am a cat. If Bertrand Russell
Found me purring round the house,
He'd praise my morals, not my muscle.
How much I love the mouse.
I am a rat. I am not vague,
Am ethical. I think things through.
I spurn a turncoat like the plague.
My tail is always true.
I am a camel. By my humps
I swear that I would never hurt you.
My mammal virtues come up trumps.
I won't desert you.
I am in parliament. Eff off.
What's right or wrong? Forget it.
My snout is snoozing in the trough.
Of course I don't regret it.
