If I was an animal

I would have about three or four legs
and patchy fur and dry skin
and a couple of eyes in the back of my head
and a thick skull and long tail
and I’d lose the eggs I had to look after
and wouldn’t bother flying or swimming
and would nibble grass and crisps
and just watch all the humans
walking confidently on their two legs
making clear decisions
and wonder how on Earth they do it.
