Ode to a Taxidermist

 
A penguin dressed up in his tux!
Some egrets and some flying ducks!
An entire V of Canadian geese!
Heads of IRS employees!
      Oh Miss Gladys!
How wondrous are your walls!

A sick mad cow! A healthy horse!
A possum (playing dead of course)!
Nutria! Some river rats!
Thoroughly beaten-up Democrats!
      Oh Miss Gladys!
How wondrous are your walls!

Turtles stuffed with crab and cheese!
Spiders! Roaches! Flies and bees!
Squirrels! Fish! A bigol’ goose!
Even some critters from Dr. Seuss!
      Oh Miss Gladys!
How wondrous are your walls!

Elephants! Hippos! Even a mouse!
And what’s this we hear
Of you stuffing your spouse?!
      Oh Miss Gladys!
How wondrous are your walls!

What beast have you missed?
We wouldn’t know it.
Just don’t attempt stuffing and mounting a poet!
      Oh Miss Gladys!
How wondrous are your walls!
