"I'm a Little Striped Skunk"
I’m a little striped skunk, black and white.
I sleep through the day and wake at night.
When the sun goes down, it’s time to eat.
So I dig up bugs with the claws on my feet.
I can smell so stinky, yes it’s true.
If you frighten me, I might spray you.
Spraying helps me keep the enemies away
So I can stay safe when I hunt and play.
