Gut

Birds peck:
Swallow whole!

Guts discern:
Know or throw!

Udders too
Hold or flow!

We perceive:
Own or loan!

Grasp or pass:
Seed or stone!

Listen well:
All guts tell!

    — I think this kind of swift, humorous poem with rhyme and a two-step rhythm is called a “Skeltonic” after the English poet John Skelton (died 1529).
