Very cute - and you obviously did do your research, as an Aussie gave you the thumbs up! (LOL Hope I get one too!) Enjoyed this.

What fun! The poor Tazzy has his troubles, but we still are drawn to his eccentric look and his wild and wily ways! Fun, entertaining, and informative...that's a lot to pack into a poem. ( :

Loved your poem. I feel the same about roaches (UGH!) But you are right, we do need to find the beauty in all of God's creatures.
Very creative writing on topic. You made it fun as well as informative. Love it!
