Treasure Island

Anita Atina

A parrot and three squirrels

A noisy disagreement had broken out
Between a parrot
And three garden squirrels,
Who were up and about
On the high walls of an old monument

The parrot loudly complained
About trespassers of his domain
‘It isn’t even safe, any more
To store ten feet above the ground
The nosy parkers find out! ’

The squirrels protested in unison
‘It wasn’t even our intention
To intrude on this private dominion’
The treasure they beheld
Was too precious to leave, o well!

So a loud argument ensued
Doing much to amuse
The watching birds and dogs
Who inserted their opinion
With timely squawk and bark!

‘Twas amusing to see
A growing gathering, with such glee
Summer’s abundant frills
More precious, with growing winter chills
Every animal worth its salt was about
Oh humans, they never find out!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
