Saturday, August 22, 2015

Inspired by the photo article about a mother raccoon and her twins who were treed by a dog, Jean Monce Bryant sent in this poem.

My oh my  Oh me oh me
Mama raccoon up a tree
And her babies that makes three
Little robbers in disguise
Little masks upon their eyes
And striped tails--that's no surprise
They're just looking for a meal
Some nice morsel they can steal
That is really no big deal
When the dog was out of sight
They were brave--there was no fright

Maybe they should prowl at night
