Mandy the Pangolin walks around
with paws that never touch the ground;
her claws too long to take her weight,
her balance is most del-i-cate.
Hunched at the front, long tail behind,
into a ball she’ll quickly wind -
for fear or foes she forms a shell,
and sprays a most disgusting smell!
A pine cone formed from razor scales,
made of the stuff of fingernails,
Mandy can tear an anthill down -
sticks out her tongue just like a clown,
a foot or more, all covered in glue -
termites, Mandy lives on you!
So stay in your hill and quiver in fear
when Mandy the Pangolin waddles near.
