Oh Opossum, Oh Opossum
LOL this is a poem about a Opossum. I know this is a horse poem section but i have one about a Opossum. Here she goes.

Oh Opossum, Oh Opossum
My cat drug you in
Oh Opossum, Oh Opossum
You look very thin

I look to see if your alive
You look back at me with devilish eyes

Jumping back as if you attacked
I stumbled and fell as a matter of fact
You look at me with teary eyes
as if to tell me your about to cry

I look you over to scared to touch
you roll over on your back then your gut
you try to stand but fall
you try once more but can not at all

Thanks for reading it. This is true. We had a Opossum in our yard. And it was hurt. The poem came to me when i was trying to sleep and take my mind of my fat swollen ankle. It worked and this master piece came out. Hope you liked it and i want to know what you thought. It's rare when i can write a nice poem. So tell me what you think. The good, the bad and the ugly of my poem.

Aww! I raised a possom about 2 years ago. She was found outside the snow leopard pen (at the zoo my mom worked at) and one of the zoo keepers found her. She weighed less than 8 grams and was smaller than my palm. She is now a healthy, thriving (and fat) possum named Blossom the Awesome Opposum and lives at the zoo and is used for programs. She is the sweetest possom in the world.

I liked the poem. :D
Was the Opossum okay? By the way?

:shock: OMG!
That is the cutest, pink little schnoz ever!
Do you have more pics of Blossom? :wink:

Haylee what a cutie. And yes the Opossum died. I found that it had blood coming from its stomach

I realize this is a bit off topic, and not an Opossum....
But I thought I'd share my odd barn "pet". :wink:
