Squirrel Rocket - Poem by Ima Ryma
The flight mode of a flying squirrel
Is not the same as a bird flies.
A body membrane does unfurl
Like a parachute in disguise.
And then from tree to tree a glide,
Using the fluffy tail to steer,
Up to hundred fifty foot ride,
Quite accurate from there to here.
The tail also acts as a brake
To make the landing in good form.
The flight's at night for safety sake,
Less predators out then the norm.
Most famous flying squirrel to be?
The cartoon, Rocket J. 'Rocky.'
