The Silly Sloth & The Squirrel

squirrel-2245913_1920

The silly sloth so loved the squirrel,
that the two ran paw in paw,
looking for snarks and going for larks,
and outright defying the law.

While chasing their tails, delivered, the mail —
a letter was once dropped off.
A letter for me? A letter for you!
But at papers, both did scoff;

Yet the letter did hint at a tale of tails,
and that did so interest them,
that they ripped it open, ripped it apart,
and could not at all read it, then!

So they threw it upwards; it rained like confetti,
and they danced under the falling tatters —
and then they sang a song; a laughing sweet song
their feet going pitter-a-patters;

And they ran through the woods, and over the sky;
they ran until time stood still —
they ran and they ran until they fell down,
and lay oh-so-dead on the hill…
