The Sloth Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABA CCC DDD EEE

In moving slow he has no PeerA
You ask him something in his EarB
He thinks about it for a YearA
And then before he says a WordC
There upside down unlike a BirdC
He will assume that you have HeardC
A most Ex as per at ing LugD
But should you call his manner SmugD
He'll sigh and give his Branch a HugD
Then off again to Sleep he goesE
Still swaying gently by his ToesE
And you just know he knows he knowsE
