Deer Devour Tiger Lilies

Deer devour Tiger Lilies
which grow along the deer path.
Woodchucks chuck and chew
apples and peaches and blue-
berries in the orchard; the
pears aren’t quite ripe.
Chipmunks gobble up bird seed;
squirrels dive bomb feeders
from nearby branches of trees.
They were all there before
the invading aliens who fight
for what they say is their right;
but are not quite
willing to exterminate
Alvin and Bambi;
that would take
the hate
the Invaders reserved
for the Indians.
