When squirrels keep calling me

This is sort of a poem that keeps following me. Poetry is an expression of one’s deep weight of thoughts! Sort of like shallow river- almost like the song sung by Lady Gaga! Shallow rivers are the kind you can walk right thru!! The trick is, don’t let slimy rocks make you slip you right into the river!!!! Even if you trip into the river it’s the most refreshing experience!!! Don’t be afraid like I was!

Eee, before they were tanned
After washed and dried
Qaliq

You stand up! Hunker down!! Stay Home!!!!
