Poem: "An Armadillo"

Updated on July 23, 2014

"An Armadillo”


So what I am I

Chopped liver

Says the Hare

About the

Armadillo

Why him alone

Should get

Such a

protective coat

While we sit

out in the open

Like a heard

Of foolish

wary Goats

What is it

that could

have possibly

Happened.

Why he gets

The armor.

And us

Such a thin

flimsy skin.

He can

stand still

We must

have eyes

Behind

our heads

scared of

our own

shadow

He can go

Into his shell

We must run

Like hell

Sometime

we don't

even live

To tell

It's such a

day to day

life

Living on

the run

While he

sits back

Having all

the Fun

He rolls up

into a ball

Don’t even

need to see

We are

always

on lookout

Even when

We are dead

Tired and

Extremely sleepy

Said the hare

Who’s responsible?

This is not fair

Thought

It’s was true

God love all his

Creatures.

That should

mean us too

Yet we have

to keep

Running

If not

We can even

End up

A meal for you

That’s not fair

Said the Hare

I want to be

An

“Armadillo”


Bless.

      Thank you very much dear Caroline , I pretended I was a hare for a moment always having to run for your life , and I have an Armadillo digging up the yard and he does not even run , I think he knows he is protected. lol

      Thanks for reading and smiling.

      Bless.

      Lol . But that's why the Hare is saying that's not Fair, after feeling so many different teeth sinking in to him and not living to tell the tale.

      To run from man is one to to Have to run from everything.

      These Arnmadillos here are not even running from me , they look at me and smile. And they are rightfully protected the rabbit is a goner.

      Bless.

      Thanks Sunshine you are truly a sincere one who live up to your profile description. I like that.

      You are so correct I knew them for quite sometime , but never knew they were so destructive to property, till I got to your neck of the woods. And they are not afraid, that funny because when I first saw them down here I walked right up to them and they did not even run.

      I laughed my head off, because where I was born, that would be an immediate party , well I was still a young man then never grew up to eat them and now it's impossible, vegan.

      Thanks so much for reading and the truthful comment. Sometimes I catch myself thinking up jokes and laughing alone , this time I said I'd share. Happy you find it funny.

      Yes the armadillo does have a hard shell yet the hare is unprotected. We have armadillo's who like to dig up our yard they annoy me, we have hare's who live in the nearby woods and one in my home:) I'd protect a hare before an armadillo! Fun hub Sky!
