The Squirrel, Ever Vigiliant, Always Working: Poem
This is another case where it would behoove hubpages to allow center formatting. This poem is heavily reliant on format (which maybe means it's not that strong of a poem, but, that is a subjective claim, i suppose). I've posted it to my personal blog, so you can view the way I formatted it. You can view both versions and decide what you like better!
who desire his flesh
across he runs
ever vigilant of hawks
across he Scurries
for nuts, fruits the grand prize:
a discarded apple core
a half-eaten sandwich
he fills his cheeks
across to his home
in the tree tops
secure and panting
for like the hawk
