55 - Outwitting Squirrels

They were smarter than him;
that much was clear.
They scavenged his yard,
both the far side and near.
They took his Corvette
out for a spin!
Some days it felt
like he never would win.
He needed a resource,
that much was sure,
and he hoped that this book
would soon be the cure.

Have you written a story in fifty-five words? Let The G-Man know!

Wow, they're even worse than the squirrels that chew their way in and make their home in my mother's roof.

Sometimes a lighthearted romp on Good Friday is just the ticket. I LOVE "they took his corvette out for a spin!" I bet they'd at least get under the hood. Have a great weekend!

It would help if they weren't also agile.

There's no love lost between me and squirrels - the bane of my garden.

Squirrels are delicious.
But I'm not so sure they belong in Mensa!!
Loved your Rodent 55 Ann...

As a rabbit person, squirrels are my natural enemy. I don't give a damn that they are cute and chitter chattery. Their tails are too long and their ears too short. Instead of holes in the ground, they live in trees. Nope, I don't understand squirrels.
