Human animals

Butterfly
I flutter high
And strain for the sky,
With body and mind
And a quick smile
To tell you why
I love my
Life

Horse
I gather pace
And learn to race,
To take part in the chase
And set my face
Against anything base,
Preferring to lace
The world with good grace


Owl
I became wise,
Though not in my eyes - 
For me a surprise.
I never tell lies
And that’s how I rise
To my expertise
In the wherefores and whys.

Bear
Ouch!
Now I’m a grouch,
I sit on the couch,
Growing my paunch,
And diatribes launch
I meet my match
And fall in the ditch.
