LEMMING YELLOW

Up here near the arctic sea,
a bit afraid to be here, see?
But, we are out here, don’t ignore us!
We are sort of herbivorous,
scoring mostly leaves and shoots,
grasses, sedges, sometimes roots.
There are times, we will eat grubs.
They’re kinda slimy, thus the snub!
When we go to sea, the tide’ll take us.
The myth we’re suicidal makes us
kinda nuts, but we’ve got gut!
A kind of vole, a kind of mouse,
we can see Russia from our house.
