Today I Wish That I Was a Moose

Today I wish that I was a moose,
Not a duck, not a mouse, not a rabbit or goose.
Don't think I'm opposed to those other fine creatures;
I'ts just that the moose has some wonderful features!

For starters, the moose is so big and so strong,
With muscles that bulge, and legs that are long.
If ever a moose disagrees with a car,
It’s the moose that escapes with nary a scar.

And let’s not forget international fame;
In all of the world he’s a household name.
Though never acknowledged by the State of Nebraska,
He’s a symbol of Sweden, Maine and Alaska.

And finally there’s something my mother once stressed:
“Whatever you do, do it well; be the best.”
I know that the moose has the most ugly face,
And quite frankly, I’m tired of just second place.
