THE BROWN BEAVER, by            
First Line: Oh, man, I think I know just why it is you sigh
Last Line: That many a brave and daring man has died for less!
Subject(s): Animals; Beavers; Fur Trade; Furs


Oh, Man, I think I know just why it is you sigh --
It is to be as beautiful and soft and brown as I.

Knowing that when I'm dead, my warm and cuddly skin
Will be tucked tenderly beneath a dimpled chin,

Will be so gently fingered and adored . . .
Death will, to me, much happiness afford.

There be far better things than a smooth, round bosom?
Then you, my doubting friend, are free to choose'em;

And I'll always have this soothing thought to bless,
That many a brave and daring man has died for less!
