Hummingbird vs Squirrel

Looking at his reflection

the squirrel starts to explain

mitigating circumstances

causing seed difficult to obtain

The human is an igrate

changed the decor

the rules are different

evening the score

Next to the birdseed

is a hummingbird feeder

carefully guarded

by an aggressive leader

Chasing me away

with each attempt

gathering the troops

no creature is exempt

A new plan

is being computed

this time at night

will be executed

Leaving the reflection

the squirrel took a nap

waking when the sun went down

then running a lap

At the feeder

putting the plan into action

quickly grabbing seed

waiting for a reaction

Full now

scampering away

sounds of victory

a plan well played
