I'm a platypus,
My name is Gus,
I don't know why you make a fuss.

Yes, I lay eggs and have some fur
that's somewhat odd, I must concur.
(especially since my name is Gus!)

Warm blood and bills ain't no big thrill
(and in fact, my venom will rarely kill)
I wish you'd see us as a plus,
And not make so much fun of us...
