Strategy: The Prized Seed

squirrel eating grass in park march

There it was 

in such perfect sight

laying there in the open

been waiting all night


Closer I crept

planning a strategy for days

not a feeble attempt

nothing to get in the way


Over the fence

scampering quietly in the grass

nothing will defeat me

getting the prize at last


No one around

the BB gun is gone

bypassing the slinky

there is a task to be done


Grabbing the feeder

the seed tastes so fine

gathering up a cheek full

all of it is mine


The humans are asleep

dreaming in a quiet slumber

the prize is mine

it is a great number


Over the fence

scampering to the park again

remembering this strategy

today is a win
