Happy The Squirrel

Happy The Squirrel

A Poem by Joseph - Michael
"

Just one of those average day until the unexpected occurred.

"

 

Oh, What A Happy, Happy Day For Happy

Happy Is Out Of The Mood Of Being Snappy

He Took A Peek Out From The Hole On The Tree

Taking A Quick Peek To See What's There To See

Everything Is All Very Quiet And So Nice

Thinking Way Much More Than Twice

Before Deciding To Go Out And Enjoy

While Eating And Treating His Nut Like A Toy

Finally, Happy Made A Choice To Go Out

Rather Than Staying Inside And Pout

Taking A Real Deep Breath For The Air To Whiff

Then Pointing His Nose Around To Sniff

Climbing Down From The Tree To The Ground

Staying On Guard For Any Of Those Hounds

Running Inside And Around The Tall Grass

Until The Sunlight Reflecting From The Glass

Hitting Happy's Eyes As He Quickly Rubs Them

By That, He's Starting To Feel So Overwhelm

Instead Finding The New Nuts He Was Raking

He Decides To Take A Break And Do Sunbathing

Laying On His Belly Over The Piles Of Dry Rocks

Rolling Around On His Back And Watching The Flocks

Stretching His Body Open Widely And Start Hacking

Sound Of Half Of His Bones Begin To Cracking

Lazy M**********r Just Had Been Roadkilled

Therefore, It Was A Happy Day To Get Killed

What? Don't even start with the "Aww, poor squirrel" craps. You gotta admit that it sure was a good day for him to die.

This is absolutely brilliant. I love the satire on children's poetry. It starts off with such a cute name and cute imagery, peaceful and fun and playful. And ends with a wheel running over a small, furry creature with swear words and rubber. There are some points when the rhythm feels slightly off, but overall this was a wonderful poem. Truly hilarious!

The picture at the end of this is obscene, but it made me laugh.

Everything is all very quiet and so nice...
...Treating his nut like a toy...

These lines are priceless. This is deliriously amusing.

Awww.. poor.. squirrel.. lol. You know I had to do it. :) A great piece that had me chuckling throughout and going :O at the end. You have a wicked sense of humor.. but truly.. some of those squirrels are a tad stupid. Met one just the other day and he almost had the same fate as Happy. A few inches and it would have been CRUNCH! :)

That was funny!

I was a little thrown off that you'd right something... "happy"; I knew something was up. ;)

This was great. Seems natural, though. lol! Roadkill... The curse word was used perfectly, I must say. XD

Great work! Glad you posted it. ^^

Ironically Yours.

awwww but what about the poor squirrel :P
yeah I admit..... it was a wonderful sounding day (nice and very creative) I was all into it I mean really got my undivided attention and then bam! I can so relate, since we motocross, you take a chance everytime you start the bike (but a life without it? nope can imagine it... so yeah go for it and live each day to the fullest) (-: awesome work Joseph-Michael

You are right...It was a good day to die. Very nice...I liked it. Maybe we should all take a lesson from him and not stay holed up in our own nests. Death can come for you at any time. Why not get out there and enjoy life in the meantime and stop hiding. Good Work!!

Such a fable~ indeed every day is a sublime act of faith and fate has her way..he may have died, but would his life been any better just stuck in the hole in the tree? No, I dare not think so....better to live an hour or TRULY living then penned up in a jail of fear. "Better to go out in a blaze then fade away" ~kirgin (or something like that)
