A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

Needle Rat

There is a rat

With a prickly back

And he belongs to me

He lives in my garden

Under a log

Where he longs to be

A little hedgehog

It's really quite odd

This confused animal of mine

This tiny sharp ball

Curled up and small

A wannabe porcupine

But when he gets

To feeling lonely

Off comes the pin cushion

Tied to his back

And he wants to be

My pet again

My little

Needle Rat.
