Many human beings consider me an animal that’s beautiful.
I am one of those mammals classified as a marsupial.
Some people call me an “Australian teddy bear”.
However, “koala” is the proper moniker I wear.
This continent down under is my native home.
To other places in the world I do not want to roam.
All of you zookeepers, please don’t take me away.
Here in this land you call “Australia” is where I want to stay.
