A skunk has taken up residence

Under the water hose spool…

A man went to water the flowers,

And found the skunk where it was cool.

It wandered near our door last night,

Gave several people a scare…

I was surprised this afternoon

To find the skunk still there.

The guy who surprised the once-sleeping skunk

Apparently got a spritz…

The skunk had poor aim when still half-asleep,

The fellow was barely missed.  🙂

We heard of sleeping dogs and bears

And the dangers of waking up same…

A skunk taking up residence here

Certainly adds to our fame!
