This is a poem originally written for a undergraduate creative writing class.
|A Cat, A Dog and A Squirrel
The cat, the dog, and the squirrel meet on a sunny day
The dog speaks to the squirrel in the tree, “Let’s play today”
The squirrel says to the dog, “No, I will not play today
I will play only if the cat plays as well today”
The cat nibbling on grass does not want to play today
The cat says “I will play only if the dog will play today”
The squirrel says “okay the dog will play today
But only if you play on this sunny day”
Soon the cat, the dog, and squirrel all decide to play today.
