The camel

The camel's quite a useful beast,
Where rain forests occur the least.
She dresses with one hump, or two;
Both kinds exist, I've seen a few.

Yet I'm afraid there is one hitch,
I never know which one is which;
Bactrian, or Dromedary?
Confusing, but not to worry!

Her hump's good for storing water,
(That's how Mother Nature wrought her),
So until the next oasis,
She lacks thirst in desert spaces.

Miss Camel's temper would be short
Without some water for support;
Were she thirsty, what a folly,
To expect her to be jolly.
