A Tale of Two Critters
A Tale of two critters..
The other loathed..feared..killed
Same basic anatomy
One has large eyes..slim figure..bushy tail
The other..beady eyes..fat figure...slimy tail
They both survive
They both thrive
One scampers in yards..up trees..through the park
The other in sewers..and subway tunnels in the dark
One is fed the fruit of the earth
The other feeds off the refuse of earth
Look around..you’ll see squirrels and rats
We feed off love..self worth and esteem
Its what keeps us alive
Wherever we find it..in order to survive
So next time you’re about to label someone
Tell him he’s not smart..not good looking...not like his siblings
Tel her she’s not pretty..not skinny...has no friends
They’ll even thrive
Not as a squirrel
But perhaps as a rat...
Got a problem with that?
