The Awesome Opossum


Say what you will,
Think what you might.
The awesome opossum
Is a wondrous sight.

Long-tailed and bright-eyed,
Descended from ancient times,
Nature's little garbage disposals:
They thrive in Southern climes.

Do not look down
On these residents of our planet.
They were here before us humans
And they may survive us on it!
