Moose browsing

I read an academic paper about the effects on moose browsing on certain types of trees, and I found the phrase moose browsing interesting. Apparently moose have a tendency to nibble on various trees and not eat only from one, and this is called moose browsing. The more you know…


I spent my day moose browsing,

Looking for a pet for my collective housing.

Someone to trim our bushes and weeds,

Encroaching trees from Monsanto-like seeds,

Clearing the snow like a train snow plow

Making the snow fly upwards now.

Plus, he could act as a big, brown pillow,

With his antlers as a bed for our friendly armadillo.

I didn’t go to the nearest market of moose

After their pens fell into disuse.

Hunting one myself was a far better option,

If you know the drill, you’re set for moose adoption.

First be polite and ask the moose leaders,

If they have a child they will give to the Readers.

They had one, in our neighborhood tribe,

One special one, how to describe,

Slightly unruly, but ultimately nice.

In exchange, zones for grazing,

Planting the right stuff that tastes just amazing.

So I came back with a moose of our own,

Now we feed him till he’s full grown.
