talking about squirrels

Squirrely’s comment has got me thinking about squirrels. Back when i was crazy i had this fantasy of putting together an all girl teen rap-punk fusion band hiding messages of female empowerment behind teenage rebellion. I wrote a couple of the songs and thats about as far as that ever got. One of the pieces of a piece that i liked goes like this:

I was kicking it one night just me and the girls

We were watching TV and talking about squirrels

It seems the law of the jungle is the law of tooth and fang

And the fat male squirrels wanted to make themselves Kangs

But the little girl squirrels knew that wasn’t right

So they banded together and they tought themselves to fight

When the big male squirrels learned of their might

They ran out of town and never stopped for a bite

    🙂 Mike, you are something else. I don’t even know what to say. I totally wasn’t expecting “Kangs” to pop up (what the?!) I’m hard-pressed to come up with a squirrel poem that tops your song clip (I’m trying – just staring at the screen) Well, when I do think of something, I will share!
