All Hamsters Go To Heaven

Nicholas Browning


Our furry friend puts us to shame

In the giving of his faith,

Of his eating of his straw

Or his gestures in saving face.


He nods to his mortal prison,

And casts a glow on our misgivings,

He takes what he's offered

And doubles the interest risen.


A better example we've never known

Nor a finer hamster does there exist,

Never knowing just what it is he does

Or the temptations that he resists.


He believes in us as you do,

With a chipper tooth to shine,

So if you're up there take a listen

Of this wonderful mate of mine.


I'm telling you now, God

Wherever you may be;

If you don't take that hamster

Then we'll give him willingly!


Dedicated to Orchidee.

(All in good fun. I think he's the orange one.)

  • Comment from author about the poem: I am a man of no religion, but credit should be given where it is due. (Speaking of course about the hamster in question) Happy day to you all!

    Of hamsters there are a very few
    That have been honoured to a saint like stature
    Than that of our heraldric mate Orchi
    Christ like in his nature

    He also stays up night running in his wheel!

    Nicely penned Nicholas made me chuckle

      A success it is to make a crow exhale
      A few bristles from his nostrils.
      Wait, I think I read they don't laugh though;
      I didn't know it was possible!

      And yeah he does doesn't he xD Thank you Sir I'm glad you had a giggle.

                This was a very nice pawn and there is something about it simple eloquence that reminds me that sometimes we need only look at our little friends and recognize just how precious life is and how much simpler it would be if we could only see through their eyes.
