I live in the country where wild animals roam free in my backyard


Sitting in my den
By sliding glass door
A squirrel ate tree debris
From a blue plastic bin
In my backyard budding green foliage.

Taking in the seven o’clock news report
Two men shot to death in their home
Screams through the neighborhood tonight
On the Eastside of town some where
As people talk in disbelief, but

RIP these kids, comfort their families
As bad association spoils good habits
In this case gets you kill
Or arrested for crime committed.
