Animal Words

Animal words, animal words (love those animal words!)

An elephant is the biggest land mammal the world has ever seen
That's why we call a thing that's really big elephantine

A lion is the king of the jungle, a hero in all eyes
When we treat a person like a king, that's a person we lionize

A pig is fat and greedy, food he never will decline
If you know someone who's piggish you can call him porcine

A serpent, it can twist and turn and tangle like a vine
A road or line that does the same is described as serpentine

A sheep is meek and bashful, like some people that I know
I call those people sheepish, my description's apropos

Animal words, animal words (love those animal words!)
