A Little Squirrel (Fun Poem)

All summer long he collected his nuts
Burying them here and there
When it came to dig them up
He couldn’t remember where
He hid his treasure store

The moral of this tale
Be sure, there is one indeed
If you want to bury your treasures
And you ain’t that smart
Draw a little map, that will help for a start

    Such an emotional poem. I love the way you use the squirrel as a metaphor for Hitler. Wonderful. It was like I was actually there. It's also nice how you use the treasure as a metaphor for Jews.

    I had to check out this one because I've been making squirrel's costumes all week in preparation for my children's dance performance. They are such dear little critters, though quite feisty I'm told (the one's in my show certainly are!) . One of the dad's was telling me how they fed squirrels recently during a visit to the UK. Apparently the squirrels would take a nut deftly from the hand, run a few steps, stop, dig a little hole in the ground, pat down the earth firmly over it and scamper back for more. He was enchanted with them, as I am with this poem! love, Allie xxxx

    What a fun little poem. I agree with shelia, do a childens short poem book and get someone to do the drawings

    I love your 'fun' poems especially so. You have a fine sense of humor. Have you ever thought of writing some kids books. They'd totally dig this stuff!

    Oh David, I too, have a little ground squirrel. he lives in my front yard. he has a front door and a back door...and he forages the pecans from neighbors tree's but sometimes, only when i am feeling that he has had a bad day, i help him out with some shelled walnuts, and he loves them. Loved your poem. What a writer you are my friend, and i adored this poem and it is worth a ten in my book!
    Warm regards, Theo

    Love, Fran xx
