Hedgehog writes a love poem to her husband

  • You may be exceedingly chubby
    But underneath you’re rubadubly
    By the way that’s hedgehogese for lovely

    I look at you and see
    Something rather prickly
    But I know you’re soft and cuddly inside

    You may not be beautiful
    But at least you’re dutiful
    More so than my first husband Derek, half-poodle,
    Half-hippo, half-unknown -blobbery-thing, but I won’t talk
    About that ............
