Over the Hedge

The Living Poetry picture prompt

There is a food shortage
in our town
except the gated community

I've found a way
to climb over the hedge
to help myself
with some leftover party food
and pack some for later

On my way back down
I come face to face
with a squirrel
nibbling on a pine cone

It looks at me
I look at it
Suddenly I feel really sad
because God looks after a squirrel
better than me

    1. Job is my favourite book of the Bible. The fact that when he sees God, he has no more questions. I’m always reminded of that if I am ever seeing obstacles/calamities are bigger than God.
