AN ENCOUNTER Hi Mandy, here is my bit on the Chipmunk.
Adult squirrel Perched on a cliff Must be a girl See her fancy quiff.
She searched the rock To see it was safe. Checked out the talk Saw no friendly face.
None of her pals Was she able to chase Where were the guys’n gals? No one to race.
So on this morn She chewed a treat, Feeling so forlorn They’d planned to meet.
She continued her snack A chew then a nibble, Her lips a quiver and smack. T’is better than kibble.
Out came friend Sue Who was a Chipmunk Abra- ca- dabra she was one too Disguise was her funk.
All the squirrels were mean So she used Dad’s power, Became a chipmunk Queen To frolic with Sue for an hour.
Cause after that Back into a squirrel, She turned stat Gave her head a whirl.
Oh, what fun with Sue If only she could stay, As a chipmunk Whoo Hoo! They could always play.
A Cinderella Dream !
