howard the coward

this morning little howard is
exhibiting his cowardice
he’s skitterish
and squeamish
he’s turning kinda greenish
but mostly streaked with yellow
he’s a frightened little fellow
i have to laugh at what has caused
this little guy to soil his paws
he isn’t going mad, oh no,
he’s just seen his shadow grow
he’s no puppy,
he’s a chicken
