Poems of the Week


by Ruth S. Baker

“Hedgehog-saving teen recognised by Prime Minister”
BBC News

“Baby Hedgehog Rescued by ‘Well-Meaning’ Woman Turns Out to Be a Pom-Pom”

News items on these creatures (rightly prized)
This week were something of a varied lot:
A hedgehog-saving teen was recognized;
A hedgehog-pom-pom, au contraire, was not.
