Binky and the Nut

A Pecan nut upon the ground
Sir. Squirrel excited he had found
An’ Chirped an’ Chirped
Round an’ round
So loud Sly Rabbit caught his sound
“Pecan nuts from an Oaken tree,
Not Walnut, Chestnut nor Hickory!
Yes, a Pecan nut if you please
A miracle forged enough for three!”
“A Pecan nut you say you’ve found?
Tossed upon an oak nut ground?
Let me view it for a while
Sly Rabbit said with a dainty smile
“Though smooth and striped.”
Sly rabbit piped
…And even brushed in brown!..”
…A squiggly crease.
Could be a feast”
Sly Rabbit then did frown…
With long tall ears
He shook to hear
If it made a sound…
No rattle tattled
Or even prattled
What Sir. Squirrel found!
So, he snatched a rock
And gave it a knock
And came up with a prize
A giant lump
So Sweet and plump
It made him tell a lie!
“Along the crease
which held a feast
Thus I did divide.”
“Old and musty
slightly crusty
was the meat inside!”
Thus he revealed
He turned on his heel
And hopped along his way
Surprised he pondered
Sir Squirrel wondered
“What did Sly Rabbit Say?…
…Old and musty
Slightly crusty
Was the meat inside?!”
For in the shell
A squirrel could tell
With out having to divide…
Must be the flavor
That caught his disfavor
Because he is a Hare.
He didn’t have time
To show him his find
And it made no sense to share…
So…
Sir Squirrel bent down
Where he had found
The pecan nut in shell
He thought he had plenty
After picking up twenty
An’ went to the burrow he dwelled….

[note: Mr Rabbit did not know Sir Squrrel had a lot of the the tasty nuts and told a lie so he could eat what he thought was the only nut!. ………. get the story?????????????]

Words of Wisdom
@1989
“Be careful, I love you!” Mother’s cry.
Our cherished authors whom plagiarize
those words of wisdom that rectify
our thoughts and feelings piper pied…

The Depth of Knowledge
@1986
They glide
the crystal crisp
windy wisps,
Through
Cotton candy
Swelling puffs
and
Swirling
Spongy
Stormy Tufts
SEE!
The feathered pair?
Swooping the air!
Wings
Gracefully swept.
Reaching.
Striving.
Knowing
Their very depths!
TOP

A Good Cry
@1991
Chilly
silken
rivulets rain
an’ break
the bound
by their chains.
Those Tears
of sorrow,
loss,
and shame,
began
the Dawn
and swept
the pain!
TOP

LOVE!
@1972
God
invested
in a simple word.
Spread
The Gospel
Until
we heard;
four separate
letters,
when single
plain.
Together
put
thus
sustain:
man
and
wife,
vast
an’ few,
children,
strangers,
puppies too!

The Price
@1979
Old Man Bianco, his vocal voice
stripped of all it’s octave choice
creaked and crowed in age and vice
“Liquor, tobacco, you pay the price!”

Why?
@1980
I often wonder
why?
mothers are
always close
never far…
I often wonder
why?
Fathers are
never close
always far…
