To quote from the film UHF “Badgers? Badgers?! We don’t need no stinking badgers!” which is a parody from Blazing Saddles “Badges? We don’t need no stinking badges!” Combining two films from early in my life which contributed to my warped sense of humor….

Wow! A fantastic trio, David. ❤️
A trio of what, Jeff? 🤔
Ha! Three badger poems = 3 in a row (I read them back to back to back) = trio. 🤗💖
there are actually 7:
Ah, how fantastic. Thanks, David. ❤
Jeff – I just wrote an eighth – it’s slightly different because I set additional rules for myself:
Awesomeness. Thanks, David.
❤ Jeff ❤
But the form could be used for a poem about anything, not necessarily badger, or I am missing something?
yep – it could be about anything – I was inspired by the name of the person who created this form – he went by ‘Badger’
And that took you on a prolonged badger journey – I see.
It has been my lesson for the day learning about badgers through your poems. Nice job David.
😂 maybe I should create a classroom curriculum!
Science education via poetry sounds good to me. I always used poetry in my science class. It was easy to see who got the concept.
Great piece. Love the picture too! Adorable.❤️
❤ thanks, Grace! ❤
I've learned more about badgers in these last two days, doing research for this series of poems, than I'd ever known before… TBH, I hardly knew anything about them… although I did know that Disney's Friar Tuck was a badger 😀
That’s wonderful! I love that! I had a similar experience with a piece that I wrote on a platypus.So fascinating.💕
it’s an added bonus that all the pics are so cute!
You know what? My friend said to me “You know what you remind me of? A honey Badger. “. Hmm. I looked it up and I got your post the same day. I was called feral by an ex. I guess I’ll take that as “fierce?”
yep – badgers can be very, very fierce – they’ll fight back when they’re overpowered and outnumbered, and they don’t have many predators – because they’re very strong for their size.
