Since skinks can have stripes down their backs like a skunk,
The clue to help choose what's a skink from a skunk
Comes from using your nose, which can tell by the stink
Which one's not a lizard and squirts you with gunk.
But if you're confused and your mind's in a kink
The rule for behavior is just what you think--
