A squirrel came into the house
I mistook her as a mouse.
But a mouse would not venture in day
And, her long tail gave her away.
She was running at frantic speed
I was afraid to eat or sleep.
She wagged her tail & chirped aloud
Making all kinds of strange sound.
She was afraid to be trapped in house
She had to escape, she was no mouse.
Used to trees and grass alike
She felt bad & tried to hide.
I opened all doors & waited with patience
I wanted her to be freed without complications.
But she was afraid & made no escape
Remained in house for next three days.
One morning I heard her chirping aloud
Outside the door, a cat meowed.
Squirrel was jumping on the door
Afraid to step out as cat was close.
Brother tried to scare the cat
Splashing water and throwing mat.
As cat ran, he opened all door
And waited for squirrel to go.
But she did not try & remained in house
After three days, we found a mouse.
Dead in a corner, moving no more
Oh! it was she, who couldn’t find a door.
She had no courage, so could not escape
Tried to hide in garbage & died without trace.
