Tale of a Tail: A Monotetra

This umbrella thing is not cool
I feel like such a silly fool
since I'm on my way to the pool
It's not a rule      It's not a rule

It's purple satin edged with pearls
Cute when carried by little girls
but too fancy for us squirrels
Yes, it furls        Yes, it furls

It doesn't work well with my shape
I might stay drier with a cape
when over my tail it would drape
Like a serape      Like a serape

I like that you feed me and yet...
you cause me to worry and fret
I really don't mind getting wet
I'm not a pet      I'm not a pet

I don't want to nag or complain
but let me scurry in the rain
A squirrel with an umbrella...
It's so insane    It's so insane
