City Hick’s Meal

By Jeff Shumate © 2010

 

From my porch,

 

It caught my eye,

 

A chubby brown squirrel,

 

Dancing by!

 

Stopping briefly,

 

Below the rail,

 

He nibbled at a shell,

 

Fallen from my pail.

 

Sensing some danger,

 

He slowly looked up…

 

Me looking him,

 

He looking me,

 

Our eyes met squarely,

 

What did we see?

 

I saw a squirrel,

 

A city hick’s meal!

 

He saw the barrel of a gun,

 

What a raw deal,

 

Chubby brown squirrel,

 

A city hick’s meal,

 

Never even left my porch,

 

Not a bad deal!
