My Fortunate Friend

Some years ago I wrote a poem

About my friend the two toed sloth.

You might have wondered why that was

When most people view them with loath.

They have one gift that I admire,

And wish I was the same.

It would give me restful nights

And that would be my aim.

For many times throughout night,

To the bathroom I must go.

But for my friend on his two toes,

That isn't ever so.

The strange thing is this friend of mine,

With extraordinary cheek.

Has trained himself so he only needs

The bathroom once a week!

How does he do it? Write such lovely ditties, I mean. Not the sloth who is obviously lying.

And who’s been counting?

Is it true ? please ask your friend the sloth for the answer .

there are many of us who would be very grateful.

He complaints because he has to get out of the tree onto the ground to visit the bathroom and wishes it was once a fortnight! There’s a lesson to be learned here. 😉
