A Nutty Buddy

When ever I chance to see
A squirrel up in a tree
Dropping nuts on top my chest

My flushing anger wails
Walnuts and falling shells
Nuts gathered in a wise squirrel’s nest

When the harvest time comes
There’s nothing but the crumbs
They leave the limbs stripped everywhere

Just a nutty buddy
Grayish rough and ruddy
Throwing nut shells on top my hair

I feel sort of squirrely
Going to work so early
Trying to pick the “NUTS” that aren’t there

Cute funny and true!
The humor is very good and the poem holds your attention.
I especially liked: I feel sort of squirrely going to work so early"
I felt just that way this morning! haha :)

“Milking me like putty”
An informal nonstandard vocabulary (slang word)
Taking all my dollar profit

Don't you just hate that when that happens? Well nuts to them and I think I got the nuts and bolts of this clever pearl. You used the word squirrels three times in the five stanzas. I might have sneaked in a nutty word like miser in the second. After all, they are - but for reason. "Milking me like putty"? -Alan
