And when he came to the place where the wild tanookis are
they roared their cute roars and gnashed their adorable teeth
and rolled their silly eyes and showed their cute claws
till Mario said, “BE-A STILL!”
and tamed them with the power up
of staring into all their yellow eyes without blinking once
and they were frightened and called him the most wild tanooki of all
and made him king of all wild tanookis.
