There once was a cheeky squirrel
who was driving my poor dog mad
He mocked and he laughed and he chortled
Oh! He was such a cad.
He used diabolic acrobatics
To show me his tummy bare
Hanging about on the feeder
He masticated without a care.
And yet he is saved from my revenge
By a fact of no dispute
Thief and bandit he may be
But aw look, he’s just so cute!
