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
