The skink

Change the u in skunk to i
You'll have a lizard skink to eye
The slug is one thing on its diet
And gardens where they roam supply it
So do not disregard the skink
It's more important than you think

    hey now did you make this animal up? It is a pretty cool rhyme!!! Glad to be back from my little trip and seeing your poems again, my friend.

    It's a real reptile. I didn't know about the skink until I read an Ogden Nash poem about the skink.
