The Sloth and The Moth (Illustrated)

I drew an illustration of this poem for my sister's birthday card a couple of weeks ago.  I nearly actually illustrated a different poem, which I haven't posted yet.  So here's the illustration and the poem again.  I've still not decided though whether my favourite absurd bird word is "TRUNGS" or "WOSBOTTOM".

The Sloth & The Moth

"Clear off!"
quoth the sloth to the moth
for he'd had quite enough
of this troublesome moth.
But the moth was lost
in the absurd words of the birds
who sat in the trees
and stared at their knees
while they nibbled on bees.
But the moth was lost
to his personal cost,
for while he listened
to the absurd words of the birds
who sat in the trees
and stared at their knees
while they nibbled on bees,
this unfortunate moth
was scoffed by the sloth,
thus bringing the moth
to an abrupt end.
Much like this poem.

PS. It's really difficult to make a sloth look annoyed.
