two chipmunk brothers

so different from the others

because they lived in a hole

in a telephone pole

played on the wires

dodged sparks and fires

and evolved a little more each day

 

it was there they discovered

they could talk to each other

from miles and miles away

 

they taught all their friends and

friends taught friends all

chipmunks around the world

 

 discussed the flavors of nuts

and warned each other of owls

set up cashes of food for

when clear-cutters took

all the trees away

 

some live in the cities

fitted woodpeckers with chisels

and carved out new homes in concrete poles

they live on chocolate and sweets

developed written chipmunk words

and now talk to each other in tweets

Yes. This has the flavor of the month.  Humor

 

The concept of our affect on the planet causing new evolution within the animal species. Next. The nut grenade?

Actually we see examples of this every day.

Awesome... from a chipmunk to twitter... I wrote a haiku inspired by a crazy chipmunk on a telephone wire in my backyard... they love running back and forth on that thing and chattering up a racket. Good fun with weekend morning coffee :)

Chasing phone calls...... See, who thinks like that. Priceless.
