True Lies

 

I was sitting in the park one day 

in the shade underneath a tree

When I saw this little squirrel come up 

and sit right next to me

 

I watched it sit there for a while 

then I offered it some bread

He looked around then looked at me 

'no thanks' I thought he said

 

I knew I must be hearing things 

so I said 'say that again'

He said 'I said no thank you' 

and I about jumped out my skin

 

Squirrels aren't suppose to talk 

or at least that's what I thought

But he asked me for a cigarette 

and said that'd mean alot

 

I thought, this can't be happening 

it had to be some kind of joke

But I was sure I heard this little squirrel 

just ask me for a smoke

 

So I gave the squirrel a cigarette 

then sat and watched in awe

When he was done he told me thanks 

and stuck out his little paw

 

I shook his paw and left the park 

I'm not sure if he's still there

Everyone says I imagined it 

but he asked me for a square

 

My doctor thinks I dreamed it all 

but I swear that it's the truth

If you don't believe my words

ask the pigeon he smoked one too
