Where Do Squirrels Sleep?

You do not see tails danging

Limply from branches

On crisp fall evenings

They are not belly up

In the grass of our lawns

Snoring if they lay on their backs

Ask the ants; they'll know

Their snores to us a slight whisper

But to ants, a mighty roar

They do not just vanish

Perhaps they congregate secretly

A large scale rodent sleepover

Smarter than us? Maybe.

They're not susceptable to our view

Or vulnerable to predators

They have to sleep sometime

And I've never stumbled upon one

Slumbering on my stoop

All I can be sure of

Is that it is much easier

To hide when no one is looking for you
