Glory, oh Glory, to squirrels
The animals sent from above.
Yes glory to squirrels, not chipmunks
For squirrels are the ones that I love

They climb in the park and the forest
And visit their little squirrel clans.
Yet I do not know what they're saying,
I bet they discus evil plans.

Plans to take over the whole world,
Yes, with their small feet and small paws
They'll torture each human with their squirrel powers
Endues us to obey with their claws.

Each city will be restless and screaming
They won't stop 'til all nuts are eaten.
Then maybe the squirrels will release us,
But admit it, we'll know we've been beaten.

The squirrels could form a militia,
And turn us each into their slaves
Squirrels will ride upon us reigning
And whip us whenever we misbehave.

Torture units will be created for rebels,
Who knew a squirrel could work an electrical chair?
The monarchy of squirrels will rule harshly,
A rule that'll fill us with despair.

But still I say glory to squirrels,
The most wonderful animals of all,
Who watch us waiting, silent,
Preparing for our race to fall.

Thanks Lexus! I like the squirrels here because you do not often see them, but when you do everyone screams, "SQUIRREL!" and goes running after them. It makes me wonder where all the squirrels go. In the spring they come out with like three at a time and its the funniest thing ever. Thanks again (:

I love this poem. The humor is wonderful! It shows that you have fun with writing and you know it doesn't always have to be so serious. I like this different side of your work! I love squirrels too.. if you ever go to Washington, DC the squirrels there are so used to people that they will just walk right up to you because they assume you have food for them. Ha! But, great job.

Thanks! I love being unique with my writing (and like to prove that not all poetry is sad!)

You've gotta take the good with the bad, smile when you're sad, love what you got and remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget, learn from your mistakes but never regret. People change and things go wrong but always remember life goes on

hahahaha! Oh my goodness. I love this. It's so different and carefree and silly but good, too. It's refreshing to see poems like this out there! Keep writing and keep being yourself. Awesome. :)

That was amazing! I have like squirrels racing and playing above my head in the attic so I guess I do have some reason to doubt their sweet nature. This poem is like my thoughts at 6 in the morning, just listening to them chattering to each other. I used to love squirrels too!! Thank you so much for writing this, I am going to put this in my favorites!!

I was actually going to read this one as my third poem for poetry slam. Do you think more people than just us and some pets feel this way?

I laughed sooo hard when I saw this. My part-poodle, part-terrier seems to agree with you every single time she spots one on our fence. Great work! :D

Once again, creative. You're very orginal with your poetry. Never loose that. It makes you stand out, in a VERY good way. I like someone who is different with their work.
