Animal Kingdom

Some mammals are blubbery, like the majestic whale.

Others are lanigerous, like Bo Peep’s sheep.

There are critters that I find infuriating, like the moles who poke holes all over my lawn. I’d like to drub them on the head with a rubber mallet, but to them it’s just a game of whack-a-mole.

Some animals, like rams, use their antlers or horns against each other in their battle for dominance.

And then there are creatures who are pure innocence, like the fawns who almost daily visit my backyard with their families. As adorable as they are, I’d like to take my belt to them to scare them away because they are destroying my plants. But my wife asks for my understanding, insisting these delicate animals have the right to survive.

And for no other reason than to fit it into this post, I believe today’s prompt words are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Written for these daily prompts: E.M.’s Random Word Prompt (blubbery), Ragtag Daily Prompt (lanigerous), My Vivid Blog (infuriating), Your Daily Word Prompt (drub), The Daily Spur (battle), Word of the Day Challenge (innocence), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (belt), JusJoJan (understanding), and Scott’s Daily Prompt (sliced bread).

    Way to go. Eventually you may even believe that animals are even BETTER than people. Considering one thing and another, it would be difficult to be better than people.
