Pls answer it fast!!!: How does the poet create humour in the poem ?How to Tell Wild Animals??

Dear Student

Though the poet talks about wild animals in his poem, the poet uses a humorous tone to describe the different animals one sees in the wild. The poet tells different ways to recognise these animals and he uses their way of physical attack and turns it to something funny and pleasant to convey this message. One may become frightened if this happened in real life, but reading the poem does not instil fear in the reader. On the other hand, it gives way for laughter. For example, the poet says that hyenas come with merry smiles; but if they weep, they're Crocodiles.

Hope this helps!
