Koala

Koala poem by Iris Carden

I eat and I pee 
and I sleep in the tree.
I'm cute as can be.
You know you love me.

I'm fussy about 
the trees where I live.
Food, water, and home,
my favourite trees give.

My habitat's shrinking
I'm now in decline,
You've taken my home.
What's now yours was mine.

You may ooh and aah 
when you see me in a zoo.
But if you plant enough trees
I could still live free too.

Pay some attention
when you're out on a walk.
I grunt and I growl,
but I can't yell or talk.

But if I could speak
you know what I'd say.
I still here now,
and I'd like to stay.

So look up when you're out
and check all the trees.
Now could be your
last chance to see me.
