Humaning

So many different animals have names that act as verbs,
Like “badger,” “ferret,” “dog,” and “cow.” Would this get on their nerves?
If they spoke English also, what would “human” come to mean?
To greatly change the landscape and/or dominate the scene?
To make and/or depend upon a plethora of tools?
To run upon one’s hind legs or to babble on like fools?
To hunt for sport? To go to war for very little reason?
To cover up one’s private parts? To mate in every season?
With luck, it might allude to humans’ rare consideration
In giving other animals our love and adoration.
Of course, we tend to figure they’ve at best a mixed opinion
Of humans as a species, with our overdone dominion.
