April 27, 1997
By: Jeffrey W. Bennett

There they go, stuffing cheeks with abandon
those squirrels, rats with tails
Chewing through bird feeders
quicker than any thick nut

As if insulted by not being invited

But how quickly they are to be humbled
the steel glass feeder is ominous

they now wait below to catch scraps
that fall into waiting paws

before, I tried everything
greasing the pole
cayenne pepper in the mix
knocking on the window
nothing worked

Oh those squirrels, rats with tails
even figured a way into the seed bin

Oh but now…..
ode to the meister feeder

After squirrels ate my plastic bird feeders, I bought a glass one.
