STALE SLICE OF PIZZA

Folder: 
POESIE HERESY

 

It’s raining outside

and I feel content

to just sit on the porch

and watch a squirrel

snag a slice of pizza

from a trash can

 

The weight is too great

and it falls in

but this is one determined squirrel

 

A Moliére tale

about a piece of string

intersects my thought

but that’s arbitrary

 

after a few tumbles

and false starts;

the squirrel gets the pizza

out of the trash can.

 

It did seem like

a lot of work

for a stale slice of pizza

but who am I to judge?

Yeah, as much as I like peanuts, cashews, almonds and pistacchios, I do find that a couple slices of pizza hit the spot.  thanks for reading and commenting.

I like this very much, and

I like this very much, and admire the squirrel for not giving 

up, no matter how difficult the situation. Sue.

Pizza

One man's stale piece of pizza is one squirrel's steak. Perception is everything.  ---  Stephen
