Poem – Rocky the Raccoon (By Danny P. Barbare)

Rocky the Raccoon


On a cold winter night

the raccoon eats pecans

under the tree.

It keeps its distance or

rather I keep mine.

I can hear its sharp

teeth grinding on the

paper shell.


It stops.

So I pick one up off

the driveway and

toss it its way

to show the world can

be kind

even to a raccoon

eating our delicious

pecans. Eat up! Eat up!

I say!

You need a belly full

before it snows.
