The Quokka and the Quoll

“G’day, my cobber, digger, pal,”

Quoll to the quokka quoth;
“How’s tricks, how goes morale?”

The quokka glumly looked

And spoke a quiet oath:
“@$#&, mate our goose is cooked,

You know, it’s such hard work

Being a critter sad
In the ‘endangered’ cirque…”

The quoll, he nodded and agreed;

With his forlorn comrade
He had no choice but to concede:

“Our time in Oz has been and gone
Now all is gone, all’s lost.
Exeunt we from this tragic scene!

At least while going out, let’s have a ball,
Enjoy ourselves at any cost
Revelling in our last days, not to bawl…”

                 *** (Exeunt)***

Let’s wave goodbye to quoll and quokka now
For soon they too shall be long-gone, extinct;
Too bad they’re not as useful as a cow,
For then they'd have privileges distinct...

  1. I wish them both to find a place to be safe and happy in

  2. I am sure their cuteness rating will help them survive.
