A moose named Ruth held herself aloof.
She considered herself quite superior
And looked down her rather longish nose
In cool disapproval
Of every other moose in her group.
She thought them all crude:
Their clumsy hoofed hands couldn’t hold spoons,
So they ate their soup with their noses in their bowls.
Having such loose morals,
They swam in the pool shamelessly nude.
More ignorant than the commonest fish,
The moose in her group
Had been removed from their schools
And spoke in MOO’S like the foolish cows
Ruth so ruthlessly considered them to be.
