Book of Remembrance for Gerbils, Guinea Pigs and Hamsters
  
  
Hamster 
  
The gerbil stands up
Crouching like a kangaroo
Ready to hop;
To him the children he sees
Seem tall as trees;
His paws clutch
The teacher's hand
That stretches like a branch
Above the sand
Of the tiny desert
In his hutch.
  
From 'The Gerbil' by Stanley Cook
