Being Lonely Stinks

I never thought I was bad, But many a friend, I never had. Everyone always kept away, Afraid, every moment, I might spray.
I'd arrive and say hello. They'd look at me and away they'd go. Most of the time I was alone, Left to forage and frolic on my own.
When there were parties, I was not there. From afar, I'd look and stare. Once I tried coming over- Everyone yelled and ran for cover.
I decided, though, it's not my fault! Their reactions I can try to halt. I'd brainstorm ways to reverse this mark! Better to light a candle than curse the dark.
I am strong, and I am smart- It's time that I do act the part. They'll see I'm fun and full of charm, And will realize I pose no harm.

I worked hard all through the night, Making sure they'd all fit right. The very next day I made my move- I'm worth to know, I set …

Duck looked at her and smiled wide- "A kind of duck, I'm sure! You lay eggs and have a bill! You needn't wonder more!"
Platypus was glad at first. But it did not take too long Until she started to think and feel Duck was very wrong.

Have you ever paid attention To what animal groups are called? Here are a few of the names That have me most enthralled:
Climb aboard some Otters, Because they are called a "Raft", Hyenas gathered in a "Cackle" Are sure to make you laugh.

That "Murder" of Crows out there? Clearly killing time. While the "Conspiracy" of Ravens Is setting them up for a crime.

Would you shake with fear Seeing Cobras in a "Quiver"? I'd be more afraid Meeting Sharks grouped in a "Shiver".

Elephants strut their stuff Marching proud in their "Parade", A "Bask" of Crocs bathe in the sun Avoiding all the shade.

A "Business" of Ferrets there Say you should mind your own. The "School" that those Fish swim in  Taught them all that they have known.

Don't attack a large Frog "Army", Especially poison sorts! Don't untie a "Knot" of Toads, Unless you want some warts!

Hold your ears as a…
