In Which I Write a Poem About Squirrels...

squirrel, squirrel in a tree

squirrel, squirrel

why you torture me?

your evil ways

will not stand,

you will never

rule dis land!

at your antics

i will bark,

i will chase you

from dawn til dark.

and when the squirrels are in they’re place

never daring to show their face,

the world will cheer cuz it’s been saved

and i really look forward to my ticker-tape parade!

until that day comes at last,

i will run and chase so fast.

striking terror in your heart,

cuz my squirrel-fighting skills are state of the art.

You are quite the poet....but then when you have inspiration aka squirrels in your face it makes it writing about them easy they are evil. They come on my porch wagging their busy rodent tails to tease me.

Cloud, we are all counting on you to keep those squirrels in line and up in the trees where they belong☺

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Cloud's poem is dumb
And he is too.

Hows that, Cloud, is that better? Feel better now?

Cloud, you're quite the poet...and even better, you're our hero because you're gonna eradicate the squirrel population....after that, how about coming and helping us rid the world of the rascally rabbits that torture Hunter and me?

Hi Cloud,

Pawtastic poem! Those tree rats are really busy this time of year so you have lots hard of work ahead. Me and Banjo chased one out of the backyard just the other day. He was burying a nut in one of mom's flower barrels!

Wags & wiggles,
