Ziggy The Wiggly Eared Puddlegrub Pup

Ziggy the wiggly eared puddlegrub pup

Lives life in an underground zoo,

Shyly hiding away from the flutterbug grubs,

And the wooly-winged stingy things too.

-

The reason that freedom for Ziggy has gone,

And the fact that he lives in a zoo,

Is simply because he can no longer quack,

Which puddlegrub pups need to do.

-

For quacking's a puddlegrub pups defence:

Their solitary warning call.

But when attacked from the back, they're unable to quack,

So get stung, then stumble and fall.

-

Ziggy's quack disappeared, when his big wiggly ears

Were spotted, and stung in July.

And a pup that can't quack's always prone to attacks,

And if stung once again, Ziggy'd die.

-

He was stung by a big flock of flutterbug grubs,

And some wooly-winged stingy things too.

Now slowly, he strolls down recovery road

With the vets from the underground zoo.
