Haiku Correspondence with Nature

Dear Tick, I admire
your most resolute nature,
but please unhand me.

Mister Live Oak, While
your mossy limbs impress, but,
at night, you’re creepy.

Dear Mister Gator,
No, I will not brush your teeth
for any amount.

To my crabby friend,
Sideways walking fools no one.
I have rubber bands.

Dear Praying Mantis,
Your piety and kung fu
seem to be at odds.

Dear Mister Penguin,
Despite your pristine attire,
we cannot seat you.

Dear Mister Cat, I’m
grateful for the doorstep mouse,
but I must decline.

Dear God, What were you
thinking with this platypus?
Using up spare parts?

To Pig: I’m sorry,
but I find your bacon too
tasty for pethood.
