Chipmunk

My coat streaked in shades of brown
My home borrowed in the ground 

Cheeks full with summers plunder
Winter is coming will there be enough I wonder

Nuts and seed are enough to please 
For these I gather with expertise

Shucking and shelling to reveal my foils
Carefully tucking them away so not a one spoils

They say I'm a mammal small in size
I say please don't chastise

For that little debility
I  make for with speed and agility

For I am Chipmunk
Not some little punk

    Very cute poem that well describes chipmunks. We used to have some in our courtyard, but the neighbor's cats have "evicted" them. Elton Camp

    Such cute images of the chipmunks storing their nuts and seeds away for the winter. LOL Chipmunks deserve our respect. Surely, they're not "little punks." Smart little creatures who know how to save for the future. We could learn from them, Robert. Great work! Love, Carolyn
