3 Possums in the Woods

Updated: May 17

Came upon a trio of opossums (why that first o, I’ll never know) digging in the compost pile behind the house yesterday and by the time I got back indoors was rhyming this ditty to myself.

One played dead one got mad and the other climbed a tree.

Made me wonder which of them I’d be?

Would I faint or would I snarl or would I try to flee?

Soon enough the time will come and then I guess we’ll see.

By the way, here are two of them, the guy on the left played dead, partner bared his teeth, and out of frame, the other (with hilarious slowness) climbed that tree.
