Of me you appraise
Deeds you applaud
And names you use, like adorable.
My presence bearable, now that is arguable.
Or a cold-blooded savage.
I am not gentle, I am carefree.
Benevolent and considerate? Dear, I am without compassionate.
This notion of me, how was it conceived?
Collapse what you have conclude;
Commence with what is true:
Clawlike, a feline,
'neath moonlight, by fireside,
Beat the drum and sing your demise.
Elusive, now is your chance to abdicate;
From my domain evacuate,
Of your choice evaluate
Fanglike, a canine;
Fearsome, no more than folklore,
A folktale used, no more to spook, to scare.
Of me, go on and say:
... Why do you wish to know me?
A wild coyote.
