This is my birthday present, another gift from my sleep
While hiking in the hills I came upon a mountain lion.
Sugarbones Jones and he was carrying a watermelon.
He asked, "would you like to share this watermelon with me?"
I answer, "sure thing."
We sat side by side on a low log as he busted open this afternoon treat.
Sugarbones digs in with his wild cat hand and I pick with my sophisticated paw.
He squints and says, "lets compare"
We held out our arms marveling at the difference in each.
Sugarbones says, "for the life of me, I can't figure out how you do anything with those boney little things"
I felt compelled to confess, "Sugarbones, I don't really like watermelons."
"Well," he asked, "do you like squirrels?"
I scream as I lean in "I LOVE SQUIRRELS!"
He said, "I don't, they are tough and stringy."
I scream as I lean out "SUGARBONES, NOT TO EAT, TO WATCH!!!!"
and his reply
And we sat laughing on a log
My boney hand and his great paw
