#4 The wombat lives across the seas,
Among the far Antipodes.
He may exist on nuts and berries,
Or then again, on missionaries;
His distant habitat precludes
Conclusive knowledge of his moods,
But I would not engage the wombat
In any form of mortal combat.

#6 "Ploffskin, Pluffskin, Pelican jee!
"We think no Birds so happy as we!
"Plumpskin, Ploshkin, Pelican jill!
"We think so then, and we thought so still!"

--Edward Lear, "The Pelican Chorus"
