Squirrel

United States

I'm 13 years old and was born on Valentines day during a snowstorm- I don't really make entrances like that anymore. I live in the panhandle of Idaho with my family and 6 pets, none of them are dogs or cats.

PROMPT: One Home

0
On your lush green carpet 
laid out like we are royal
from the deepness of your soul 
you ask us to be loyal

To leave your forests green and lush
let the song birds sing
Under foot humans crush
not gently care for things

You shake and you grumble
hoping we'll understand
Try to teach us to be humble
Try to teach us to withstand

Peace and gentleness you need
We laugh and we ignore 
Powered by human greed
But in the end we will implore

To save us, little humans
a life you created to care
instead we became tumors
That you should beware

Eventually you'll crumble
because we ruined you
you didn't think we'd be trouble
All you say is true

We care only for ourselves
not even for our mother
greedy to our cells
Eventually we'll suffer
