There are some that don’t understand you

Call you a rodent

Call you a menace


Surely they didn’t read Squirrel Nutkin as a child

They don’t appreciate your infections cuteness

Or your uncanny capacity to survive and thrive


Not I though, I have always been your friend

I wonder if you knew

I wonder if that was why you came so close


Beyond curious, you came closer and closer

So close that I thought for a second you might speak

Did you have a message to deliver?


Although there were no words

I think I received that message

And I appreciate your gift
