Old man Bonsai and Di
Love to bake a scrumptious pie
They’ll chatter and natter about
Things that just do not matter

Old man Bonsai lives for his garden
A cosy little cottage in the middle
Of the Wirral’s
Lovingly he feeds the squirrels
As he enjoys an evening triple tipple

One summer afternoon I said to he
The sundial announcing half past three
Where are the squirrels
The squirrels where are they
They’re starting to dwindle
How can this be

You feed them everyday
As they play so happily

On a plate
It was evening late
Old man Bonsai
And his wife Di tucked in
To a scrumptious squirrel pie

Andy, it was the daily dose of "triple tipples" that made him do it -- that and old "Di who loves to bake scrumptious pie" -- even for want of a lime she'd not bake them another time! -- I love the rhyme and the humor laced with a shot of Machiavellian ardor -- I bid you love, joy and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

... looks like that squirrel is coming back to bite beasty
Bonsai for certain sure! The true country idyll holds both beauty and blood in tension, you got that right! Delightful, ticklish rhyming in this one, boyo. xx

Doesn't surprise me at all; before mankind is done, we will eat our way through this entire planet, like locusts. 7 Billion of us now, soon to be 10 Billion - and they will all be extremely hungry. One future day, squirrels may only be found in picture books (after all the squirrel pies are already ravenously consumed).

Very nicely done, Andy.

Bye Bye Miss American Pie
Squirrels instead of apples
Is something maybe I'll try
Must have been sad though
As the squirrels said why
Singing this will be the day that I die
