A Squirrel is Nuts for you

Updated on February 10, 2013

Every morning as daylight arise

Through your window he quietly spies

Out of bed and to the shower

But when you hide he turns to glower

From room to room his watching eye

Tracks your movement and your stride

Getting dressed and combing hair

He sits with leer and sneaky stare

In his hands its wicked round

So large, it rubs the ground

He squeezes in anticipation

The largest in the entire nation

You move from closet to bed

Then the moment fills with dread

You turn and look out through the glass

See him staring without much class

A startled eekl escapes your lips

As the towel you pull to your hips

Charging to the window sill

You shut the blinds with a squeal

Dressing quickly to the door you run

To get to the car before he comes

From the air and to your trunk

A chitter chatter and a plunk

Creeping over the roof of the car

In his mouth cheap cigar

The fat young squirrel appears to dance

Taking up an awkward stance

In his paw he holds a nut

And slowly raises up on his butt

He holds it forward as if a present

A perfect furry little gent

You crack a smile at his motion

Taken back by the notion

How did the squirrel know to say

Be Mine, for Valentines Day

      Hilarious...adorable...and a little squirrly! lol..

      i had to read this because back in the day when i sold insurance - one home that stands out to this day had a plank affixed just under their kitchen window - where their 'pet' squirrel would come to eat whatever treat they left for him - and paw at the window to get in..

      i loved every second of that was truly a unique experience..

      voting up and hub-sharing on..
