The tail (tale) of a squirrel

The tail (tale) of a squirrel
by Erika Sage

The squirrel was searching for a nut
Because he was hungry at that time of day
He finally found his snack but,
A bird snatched it and flew away!

The squirrel was upset for losing his lunch
And decided to look instead for a seed.
He found a bunch and was ready to munch,
But a chipmunk stole them all out of greed!

The squirrel was losing patience
So he started looking again and found a mushroom
But a dog was running towards him
So he decided to leave the fungi and zoom!

The squirrel was fuming like a flame,
But he stumbled across some bread.
And he decided, out of his hunger,

That he would have a sandwich instead.
