Children's Poems

McDougal Meerkat

McDougal Meerkat

McDougal ran around, kicking sand in the air

While the others angrily brushed the dirt out of their hair.

“Stop that, McDougal. You’re making such a mess.”

But he chose to ignore them; fed up hearing it, I guess.

When one meerkat dug a tunnel so deep

McDougal snuck inside it and fell fast asleep.

“Get out of here, McDougal. Go and dig your own.

This isn’t your tunnel. I want to be alone.”

So, McDougal hid behind a bush and wondered what to do.

Wherever he went he made the others feel blue.

He looked in the sky and he looked on the ground,

Then climbed up on a rock without making any sound.

“I like it up here,” McDougal said with a smile.

“No matter which way I look, I can see for a mile.”

He sat there all day and he sat there all night

And avoided the others and many a fight.

We all have our own space that’s just there for us;

Like McDougal the meerkat, covered in brown fuzz.
