Mother Nature's Beauty Pageant

Mother Nature hosted a pageant last week,
With contestants of each size, each shape and physique.
There were birds and bees and sycamore trees,
Elephants, tigers, and my Great Aunt Louise.
But the question foremost on each anxious heart:
“Which creature has beauty that sets it apart?
Is there one that’s more lovely than all of the rest?
One with such beauty we’ll crown it the best?”

At last came the moment for which we were waiting,
That ended all argument, protest and debating.
Which species would win the grand beauty prize?
It wasn’t the humans, to our shock and surprise.
And though you might think it absurdly preposterous
The winner this year was our friend the rhinoceros.
For beauty, they say, is as thick as your skin
And compared to a rhino, yours is quite thin.
