Raccoon - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Yesterday I found this mammal in the trash bin,
Chiefly gray has a bushy ringed tail
Smiled with me like an old politician.
Today when I went to throw the garbage
Oh! It's almost dead but that rare smile is there.
How funny is this horrible life?
He gives and takes like a gambling.

    The politician metaphor is stunning! And the poem personalizes your raccoon and intensifies the experience wonderfully well. Excellent. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply
