Don't Feed the Squirrels!
T. S. Eliot may have written
but, let me tell you, six minutes speed by when you are timed, especially this week!

I met a squirrel out in the park
Who was so awfully cute
I didn’t want to share my lunch
I tried to make him scoot
He walked along and trailed me
until I stopped to eat
he climbed upon a nearby branch
begging for a treat
I had a bag of hazelnuts
I held one in my mouth
I saw how sharp his teeth were then
And wanted to head south!
