If I were an otter…

Just wee scientifically accurate otter poem

 

If I were an otter, even just for a day

I would eat a lot of bullhead, brown trout and maybe even lamprey

I’d spraint on the rocks and fallen tree logs

I’d take rabbits from their burrows and dig up hibernating frogs, because they taste good to me.

A lovely wee pet

I’m man’s best friend, a lovely wee pet

The sweetest dog you will ever have met

I’m loyal to my owners, I’m shared and enslaved

Yet their affection for me goes beyond the depraved

 

I’m tame, I seem happy, they think it’s my choice

I make a great victim as I don’t have a voice

Too scared to run, I appear so content

The result of dark actions that require no consent

 

The place I call home is now filled with regret

For who could abuse such a lovely wee pet?
