How We Badger The Badger

By Jackie Joseph

Badgers like to dig and burrow
deep down where it's safe and cozy;

some like to be alone a lot,
while others rely on family,

but each one likes to snooze by day
and hunt for food at night

...men say that is a problem
'coz' badgers can have a viral bite

and sometimes they make friends
with coyotes, but, i disagree ~

both wild and tame have rights, and all
the in-between places are meant to be!

And, while badgers' little legs are fast, they cannot run for long,

so when they get ill we really could
treat them; killing them is wrong

unless it's done by forest foxes,
birds of prey, wolves, a bear...

Seems the badger's yet another
creature some simply wish wasn't there
