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!
