A Cool poem for all the people that calls a Koala a Bear, i must admit i use do it as well
Don Spencer – Please Don’t Call Me A Koala Bear
I’m a koala, not a bear, and I don’t think it’s fair,
The way that people always add a word that isn’t there.
I’m a marsupial (and proud of it),
And there can be no doubt of it,
I’m closer to a kangaroo
Than I am to a bear.
So please don’t call me a koala bear,
I’m not a bear at all.
Please don’t call me a koala bear,
It’s driving me up the wall!
If your name was Tom and everyone called you Dick,
Perhaps you’d understand why I’m sick, sick, sick –
I’m simply a koala and I want the name to stick,
Please don’t call me a koala bear!
I live here in Australia, in a eucalyptus tree.
I’m as cuddly, cute and charming as an animal can be.
I don’t understand, fair dinkum,
How anyone could think them Grizzly bears and Polar bears
Are anything like me.
