OH, possum?

people shreek at me 

and say i am a giant rat –

not that here is anything wrong with that –

but i am an opossum –

or so you have called me –

oh! possom

i have my own secret name,

white dog –

fierce and proud.

i bet You have one too.

(oh and thank you for not hitting me with your car.)
