Busy Beaver


They work nonstop

but they don’t chop.

They don’t use a saw

they use their jaw.

A busy beaver

doesn’t use a cleaver.

They don’t work with a knife

‘ cause beavers are wildlife.

They don’t use an axe

and they never relax.

Beavers work all day

never asking for pay.

They always search

for lots of birch.

Beavers in a slough

and willows they chew.

Beavers works outdoors

using all fours.

They don’t play like the otter

they’re always busy in the water.

In work I’m a believer

just like the busy beaver.
