The Mole Hole

4a68db7f-7db9-443b-a559-69944f346442I saw the mole and the hole he burrowed

In my perfect lawn.

When I saw that hole,

My brow furrowed.

I will set a trap to catch that mole

Before he bores another hole

In my now imperfect lawn.

    Namaste 🙂

    Good humour and wit together with an endearing photograph: what more could one ask for in a poem?

    Namaste 🙂

      Well, they’re dirt movers. They need those claws to burrow under the ground.
