Pangolin

Sniff sniff,
Lick Lick,
Ants roll in my mouth.
Thump thump,
What’s that?
Lions from the south!
Growling,
Sniffing,
I think they want me.
Run run!
No, I can’t;
What will be Plan B?
Roll roll,
In a ball;
Scales protect me now.
Scratch scratch,
Don’t come back;
My armor won’t let me down.
Thump thump,
There it goes,
I am safe for now.
