ALVIN, A RESIDENT CHIPMUNK EMERGING IN SPRING by Beverley Burdick

With flashy stripes and body lean,
Alvin visits often to strip and clean.
He comes too often, I dare say,
And I often wish he’d just skip a day.
He digs and prances,
Nibbles and dances,
Shears off the tops
And cares not a lot
What he does to the produce.
Strawberries gone!
Tomato seedlings, too!
“Oh,” I ask him, “Now what can I do?”
But Alvin just laughs
And thinks I’m daft.
Do you?
