Battery Park Squirrel ...
... on a December afternoon.
Lower Manhattan, NYC
With plunging temperatures and brutal wind chills,
please think of these little guys with some munchies.
I may look chubby and my tail be bushy
But before you decide my life is uber-cushy
Remember it gets cold down here at night
And a frozen squirrel at dawn just ain't a pretty sight
So please think kindly of me before you depart
A handful of munchies would bring a smile to my heart!
