It can be delightfully
And liberatingly ludicrous,
For them it is a conducive haven.
And it is not boring either,
It is but a burrowing life!
Call it the basement kingdom,
For animals` fantastic freedom,
They are protected from predators,
From things like the overly dry climates,
From extreme temperatures as well.
Their cosy cafeteria is there too!
Talk of guys like tubers, roots, worms,
grubs, insects, insect eggs and larvae;
How great to hunt for food underground!
For moles and earthworms their entire
Lives are spent blissfully in this kingdom,
Animals adapted to living underground-
Like Aardvarks, armadillos, and moles
Will tell you that fossorial life is the best!
