A Hedgehog Head Jog

Hedgehog hedgehog
Harmless mammal
Not dog or frog
Not a camel

Doesn't bite, jump
Or get the hump
Quite polite
Slightly plump

Loves to curl
Into a ball
And unfurl
Around nightfall

Dozy by day
Nosy by night
Likes to play
Out of sight

Armed with spines
For defence
Million years
Of common sense

Armed with peace
For offence
Million years
Of love immense

Outside prickly
Inside lovely
Tender tickly
Kind and cuddly

Stay Safe!

@peter @minimalism Enjoying this :) Though there may be invisible spines as well. There is a reportd risk of an "Outbreak of Salmonella Infections Linked to Pet Hedgehogs", says CDC.
There was a similar study here in Germany some time ago, warning not to touch hedgehogs directly.
I still like the poem :)
