Of Badgers and Books

I'm badgered by a badger, bad,
I really think he is quite mad
he snooperously spies on me,
especially when I watch t.v.,
watch t.v. is all I do
he shouts "Your brains will turn to glue!"
Through walls and doors and floors he calls,
In kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, halls,
and when I think I'm all alone
he bellows at me down the phone
"Turn to glue, turn to glue!"
"Watch t.v. is all you do!",
In a fit of pique I bought a book
thinking I would take a look,
and as I read began to find
pictures forming in my mind,
Much better than t.v. I found
I really couldn't put it down,
I saw the badger, just today,
He just smiled and winked and walked away.

Olias.

This is very funny. What we need in this world are more badgers. Joyce

I enjoyed this so much! Badgers always intrigue me. Years ago, my son, who was nightwatchman at a gold mine, in Nevada, tamed two badgers so they would eat from his hand. It was something to see! They have fascinated me ever since.

I think being badgered at times can be helpful.  This would be a great poem for kids as well as adults.  I am glad that I found it.
