O' possum

O' possum O' possum
Sleep the day away
Await the setting of the sun
before you go and play

As the dusk arrives at last
Awake and stretch your paws
Don't clamber from your tree too fast
Hang tightly with your claws

The brown team 'v' the greys
Its football night you see
they'll use a melon for a ball
with a ring tailed referee

The match is quite a tussle
both teams are very strong
The crowd sit up in the trees
And Hisses them along

A possum breaks loose from the pack
Towards the goal he's bound
The goalie take a single look
Then plays dead upon the ground	

The melon bounces of the post
A dustbin crashes to the ground
The crowd invades with fever pitch 
To look in and see what's found

    Very imaginative and full of life. Wonderfully written. You might like my "Duck Side Story". Story poems like yours are so much fun. I'm ranking this as a fav. Love Carol.

    Love it...One got in my suburban house in Brisbane and was sitting on top of the shower stall. The cat sat at the front door we ran a merry dance! Possum well and safe outside!

    This made me laugh. :) But I am (slightly) terrified of possums and raccoons alike. :P
