A Raccoon

by sunnilicious

A raccoon in the tree
Makes noise up high and free.
It does pull-ups with glee,
And he looks down frantically at me.
Thus enjoying hide and seek
With his long tail trailing meek...
And the scent of food speaks
As his berries and frog farts break.


NaPoWriMo April 2021, Writing Prompt for Day 16 - Write a skeltonic poem or tumbling verse.

Note: I tried to follow the rules. Unsure if I accomplished it.
Note: My parents had a few wild raccoons in the yard. They/We feed them nuts, rice and seeds. However, raccoons are wild animals that eat things like fruits, berries, nuts, fish, frogs, mussels, crayfish, insects, turtles, mice, rabbits, muskrats and bird eggs.
