Local Focus – Global Reach

I hear the noise, of distant thunder.
It is the sound, of Nature's wonder.
If we're lucky, it comes at night
And provides a show, of Nature's might.
Heat lightning, will light up the sky,
While the bolts of lightning, do try,
To advance towards us and come near,
And with its approach, produce the fear,
That the Norse God, Thor, begins to leaven,
It is a message, straight from heaven.

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.
