The further we get from Pearl Harbor Day,
the more folks forget, much to our dismay.
The victims are gone
but won’t be forgotten;
as war trudges on
humankind gets more rotten.
Bad news bares: after finally picking the remaining pears from his lone pear tree, Davey H confirmed the presence of the most unwanted rodents: red friggin’ squirrels.
They left slim pickins indeed. Many plump pears lay on the ground, half-chewed.
A sobering reminder that hit home like a punch to the solar plexus.
What a ‘snooze U lose’ dilemma.
Either pick ‘em too early or don’t get any.
