Meerkats

Meerkats in their social groups
Chat about the latest scoops
Are always standing on their guard
On the mounds in their front yard
On ground with holes as pocked by mortars
That hide their subterranean quarters
It seems as though they never slumber
But they reproduce
Just when - I wonder

    Your work is so up-lifting and just a lovely way to start ones day. I read quite a great deal of poetry to my little Grand-daughter and I am so happy to say that your poems are just beautiful and we enjoy them together.......Smiles As Always, Shar

    Hmmm...there's enough of them sitting by their front doors to think this over. i suppose. Gotta love their blank expressions, so they are not going to say for sure, Jon.;) They look so alert, but very curious. Ah, I could see them in my mind while reading this.:) I really do enjoy reading about animals and nature. Thank you for posting this! Keep well....Mikki

    I LOVE meercats. they are so cute looking and this is a cute poem about them. I wrote an animal poem about the pandas on Noah's Ark. It was a contest that never seemed to have gotten judged. Can't remember the name of that poem, but i bet you would like it. Anyway, I only have time for one of your funny poems tonight. Gotta hurry to bed!!
