I am brown with white stripes

And if you get too close I might bite

I have a long pointy nose

With sharp claws on my toes


Termites won’t last a minute

I will eat my limit

I will find my way

To a termite a mile away


I live among the eucalyptus trees

I can run to my friends with ease

Although there aren’t ten of me in each tree

I still live life with glee


If only those wild cats

Could focus on the rats

I could live my way

If wild cats could stay away


You can see me in the day

But at night I’ll go away

I’ll be hiding from a cat

I am a Numbat
