sleepily awaiting the sound

startled by a white possum

Hanging by its tail, 
on the limb of the oak tree, 
possum feigns slumber

On leaves she likes to chew
She also has a tummy pouch
Like the possum and kangaroo

Premium Member Peter Possum -- MP
Peter Possum had a nasty rep
He was so white, he couldn't be hep
  He got him some brown paint
  Said, "I am what I ain't!"
If he'd only unlearn that goose step





Note: MP in the title stands for Military Police...

The Possum Sanctuary
I can almost hear
the tree scream
lopped and cut to the ground
it's base drilled
and poison filled
oozes life for months
until a spent force
the earth and insects
claim the octopus
with it's once mighty tentacles
being devoured....

When the possum met with our tire tread
He lay still and we thought he was dead
So we scooped him right up
In a pot for our sup
Let’s just say we were gravely misled

no greater love
After she was born, daddy called her “little possum” 
Mama said, “Don’t listen child, you are gonna blossom” 
they never saw her smile 
they said, “It’s not her style” 
When they placed her in the ground, both whispered, “You are awesome”

Playful Thinking
I like to go and check out the Heaven before I die
So first I will garner needed good deeds and earn my salvation
then I would just play possum for a while and hoodwink death.

Winter is surly.
Eagerly early,
Spring overtakes.
Not left behind
I hurry to find
Clippers and rake.
Each bud and blossom
Quits playing possum.
Appearances make.
Responsive resurgence,
Fixed on fast forward,
Nature awakes!

Silently signaled,
Eagerly early
Spring overtakes
Not left behind
I hurry to find
Clippers and rakes.
Each bud and blossom
Quits playing possum
Appearance makes.
Responsive resurgence, 
Fixed on fast forward,
Nature awakes.

Dear Abuser
 
Let this be a reminder of 
How you pounded your incestuous breath
On my lips
Hands clinched to my hips
As you force fed me 
Your spoiled milk
Scared from the threats you made
I played possum
As you played your dirty tricks on me
I forgive you
But Karma is a *****!

Dusk Is My Alarm Clock
I sleep all day out of sight In a tree hollow Coiled up in a ball, am I Stay still; don’t wallow When night doth blossom In the dusk I will forage Just call me “possum”

Alley cat sitting On a fence post, in the dark; Movement in shadow, Catches his marbled, green eyes; One leap and dinner is served. Such a feast will last Him and his friends, a whole day; Opossum will fight; But, alley cat’s determined One leap and cat is the meal!

I once had a Manx who constantly primped; her white underbelly never sported one piece of grass or dirt. She kept so clean and fluffy that we’d no idea he’d had her backside chewed up for three days, by an Opossum! In altercation My cat became Opossum Chow wearing teeth marks.
