Squirrel Twirl


Being a squirrel, I wave my tail.
Humans grabbed me to check this out.
Why do I wave it when I hail
A rattlesnake that comes about?
Humans think it a silly thing
That I would act with a snake so.
Aren't I worried the snake will spring
Because I'm doing my tail show?
So the humans bribed me with treats
To wander where a 'snake' would be,
To observe my tail waving feats.
I played along, but that's just me.

There's nothing much sillier than
Humans with a 'snake in the can.'

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
