I went to Rural King to buy bird seed,
eat the free popcorn and look at the 40% off plants.

Used to have to buy dog and cat food
but the last of our pets are gone

so the birds and wild critters are all we have left —
Brownie, and Two-tone, Big Momma and Little Mama. 

Oh, look, there’ s Little Guy in the pine tree.

Am I wrong to want to show off a squirrel
in the yard like people show off their purebred dogs?

But wait until you see Golden Boy…
