Local Focus – Global Reach

Posted by MFish

When day is gone and I'm alone,
To absorb, the quiet of my life,
I'm unencumbered, by not using my phone.
Reflections about this and about my wife,
Give me pause to review over again
That which troubles me, trying to strive.
So, I say to you, in this way,
It is better to help keep alive,
Memories of what awaits, on this day.

Here I am, a Native Son,
Resisting the invasion that has begun.
I am small and shades of brown.
Now there are some Greys in town.
I run along the fence, so quickly,
Much faster than in a tree.
My name is Walter Earle,
I am a Native Washington Squirrel,
Not a Chipmunk, I must say
But a Native Squirrel, every day.
The invasion came, years ago.
Not sure how, but they did show.
Grey Squirrels, coming from the East,
Eating our food; it was a feast.
I fight very hard for specie survival
Against the Grey, my arch rival.
Who will win, that's hard to say,
But I know that I'm here to stay.
