The squirrels are cavorting
on the tree out front
Spiraling up the trunk
Playing chase and hide-and-seek
All together
They can turn their feet right around
Did you know that?
That’s why they can climb
Both up
Without bothering
to turn around

NaPoWriMo 2021 Day 19
for the dverse quadrille prompt: bother
