For a friend- 1990

One Hungry Squirrel

Squirrel rushes around
searching for nuts
that a certain someone
scatters around for him

Life is rough
not always
does the hunter
find his meal

Someone realizes this
and scatters nuts
here and there
for one big hungry fella

Big gray watches
when appetite
overreaches supply
he shoots over
to a certain someone's
kitchen door
and scratches on it
so that this certain someone
knows about the shortage

I wonder who that certain someone is? :) What a fun thing to do.
