Don't Feed the Squirrels!

 Simply 6 Minutes

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!
