Description of a niche

A beautiful, comical description of a niche:

“And Nuh is the letter I use to spell Nutches
Who live in small caves, known as Nitches, for hutches
These Nutches have trouble, the biggest of which is
The fact there are many more Nutches than Nitches
Each Nutch in a Nitch knows that some other Nutch
Would like to move into his Nitch very much
So each Nutch in a Nitch has to watch that small Nitch
Or Nutches who haven’t got Nitches will snitch”
