The Things They Carry
Animals carry things. They carry things in their mouths and in their hands, in their arms and on their fur, on their heads and in their feet. They carry things because they must, and they carry things because, well, sometimes they just like to.
Some animals carry sticks.
Some animals carry Easter baskets.
Or smaller members of their own species. (Note the raccoons on the wall.)
Whatever that species may be.
Some animals carry other species, including large cats.
And tiny geckoes.
They carry things to eat.
If the animal is a scientist, she may carry equipment, including an aspirator for collecting ants.
Ants carry fire flies.
Dogs carry small green seeds.
And big brown burrs.
Squirrels carry nuts.
Starlings carry pizza.
Hawks carry cats, or so the sign suggests.
They carry tiny dogs, at least in urban legend.
They also carry strange nesting materials.
These are just some of the things they carry.
Oh, and saints carry hawks.
What do you carry? What, or who, carries you?
