Biodiversity challenge – Giant anteater

Fourmilier territory

Why the long face?
Very droll. Forgive me
If I fail to roll
Around the place.
I’m guessing you enjoy
Annoying creatures
With unprepossessing features?

Well, that joke is wearing thinner
And can no longer amuse me;
Now, if you’ll please excuse me
I’m about to have a giant ant
For dinner.
Yes, termite’s tonight.
Feel free to add those
To your repertoire
Of jokes. Goodbye,
Anthill we meet again.
Every one’s a winner, folks.
