An Ode of an Angry Weasel


I’m a weasel and I’m ticked off.


Those humans, creatures who use

convoluted, pompous, perplexing language,

speak of weasel words –


            “in most respects”




            “it is said”


I, and my other weasel friends,

find this degrading, denigrating, disrespectful

and downright mean.


I write to refute these sheepish, foxy humans

who claim they deserve dignity and respect

just because they are at the top of the food chain.


Baloney!  How’s that for a non-weasel word.
