edjog on a log

A hedgehog head jog

Look at Edjog
Harmless mammal
Not dog or frog
Not a camel

Doesn't bite, jump
Or get the hump
Quite polite
Slightly plump

Loves to curl
Into a ball
And unfurl
Around nightfall

Dozy by day
Nosy by night
Likes to play
Out of sight

Super-speedy
(No, don't sneer
Takes it steady
When we are near:)

Armed with spines
For defence
A million years
Of common sense

Armed with peace
For offence
A million years
Of love immense

Outside prickly
Inside lovely
Tender tickly
Kind and cuddly

Edjog knows
What life's about
Uses snout
To sniff it out

Knows that life
Is made for love
Enjoying life
Should be enough

Look at humans
Clever species
Some have minds
Full of faeces

Many want
More, more, more
The rest of us
They ignore

Edjog's threatened
But so are we
All of us need
To learn to be

Just to exist
Appreciate
Find true self
Before too late

Planet Earth
Beautiful place
All together
Alone in space

All together
All of life
To get along
Would be wise

Humble hedgehog
Loved by fleas
We love you too
Forgive us please.
