Do beavers ever get splinters
As they handle and chew all that wood
with all the bark and twigs and branches
you’d imagine a beaver probably would
And yet you never see a beaver
at a doctor’s or in the hospital or asking for a hand
to remove a sliver of wood from their mouth or paw
but if you did, it might be grand
Imagine sitting in a room, full of people
and in waddles mr. beaver with an ailment
a splinter I got he says, I need it out pronto
there’s just one problem…the medical co-payment.
All i have is some wood shavings,
and an old piece of wood
So I guess even if a beaver got a splinter
no way a doctor would remove it, with that payment who would?
Unless there are beaver doctors
or beavers who help when others are down
I guess that’s the key question
are there any beaver doctors around….
