pearl the squirrel

Pearl grew out of a need to NOT be SERIOUS! Pearl is VERY silly!

pearl
the squirrel
loves her
nuts
we speak
not of her
leaf
food
but
of
her nuts
for those she
likes to bury

then again
pearl
the squirrel
considered her
friends
to be nuts
absolutely
crackers

IMG_0785

her friends
unlike
herself
lived behind glass
she wished
them free
she taunted them
believing that
if she wiggled
enough

IMG_0782

she might just
get one
to bat at
that glass
hard enough to
bounce
it
out
or
pounce it
out
at the
moment
she sees
only
itty bitty
come
out
itty bitty
she says
knowing
she won’t

IMG_0780

but wait a minute
say …
just a minute
there
are
two of
you
my two
friends

IMG_0774

pearl cannot
handle two
cats

no

so back
up
pearl
just back
up
then
jump
like a
mouse
into
the drain
where
last nights
rain
shall act
as a train
or perhaps
i can
catch the
next
leaf boat
and i’ll
swirl
away fast
from the two
of
you
U
naughty
cats

i know that
they thought
that
they
had
had me
and itty bitty did
until
she was
joined by
boy-boy
shameful
big
bully
boy-Boy

pearl is a
very
smart
squirrel
safe
now
to
taunt
those naughty
kitties

no fear

Photo from and poem linked to Magpie Tales; Touch of Evil.

i have seen evil before it crept up behind me
lurking about ready to reach out and grip me

had sense enough to say no
loathesome bad energy it was

ready to fierce yank me round the neck
wanting me for dinner food for its evil ways

i just opened my one good eye and scowled hard
once i’d turned round and i could see it

well that’s a lie it really came out of the computer
across the internet and tried to grab me round the throat

evil is real very real and generally but not always
comes in the shape of too many greedy people wanting more

this was a different sort of evil it was a group of internet
bullies doing their pathetic evil hurting others

i watched it happen so often ha then it was my turn
i am the sort who assists the underdog

i did so just getting myself in deeper
i learned and then they came after me

wow it was an exercise that taxed me for some time
bitches you know evil stupid people who just bully

so in came evil wow wham splat ouch
out came character strength tenacity faith friends

you really just don’t want to mess with me
i learned very young that i had no fear
