Now there goes Tiggy, bouncing down the stairs—
The happy flashing of her lustrous tail
To any gazing spectator declares
She’s blissful as a bunny on the trail
And eager to begin this dawning day
By racing round the back yard chasing squirrels
As Kimmie throws out nuts, and quickly they
Elude poor Tig and nab what Kimmie hurls.
As consolation, though, Tig grabs a few
To bring back in the house, and then we must
Negotiate a trade: a Greenie to
Entice her with a more nutritious lust.
And so each day begins, hearty and hale,
Till sleep once more at last calms Tiggy’s tail.
