Little Game, Big Tasty

Acorn littered trunk
belies disguise. I’m hunting
limb chicken gravy

Extra credit for the hillbilly historians out there. How did a male squirrel in female clothing help win WWII?

Best Laid Schemes

A life strewn about
squirrel and man pick through homes
tossed by tornadoes

All Hands Volunteers

Inspired by “To a Mouse” by Robert Burns

The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men
          Gang aft agley,
An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,
          For promis’d joy!
