Britain’s only spiny mammal

Britain’s only spiny mammal

is not an enamel camel,

doesn’t use a flannel,

and has never sat

as a member

of a disciplinary panel.

So, what is it? you ask.

It is, ‘the hedgehog’,

who hogs hedges,

avoids sledges

and precarious ledges;

and, when on its own,

always asks to be left alone

to do whatever it is

that a hedgehog does.

Why? Well, just because.
