THE PRICKLY LITTLE HEDGEHOG

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Aug 13, 2017

The reason that I write this
note I've left by your back
door,
Is hoping you and I can get
to know each other more.
Putting pen to paper is not
a normal thing for me,
So hope my little rhyme is
not too Beatrix Potter-y.

Don't think I'm unsociable,
I'm friendly it is said,
It's just that when I'm
partying you're tucked up
in your bed.
I trust my noisy crunching
doesn't upset peace and 
quiet,
Your tasty kitten biscuits 
help to supplement my diet.

I'm unable to repay you, 
with kisses and big hugs,
Instead you'll find I've 
eaten all your slugs and
snails and bugs.
The home you built beneath
the rocks, so safe with 
hay-lined bed - 
Thanks, but at the moment
I'm established 'neath the
shed.

I'll soon be having young
ones, there could be six
or eight,
And if you want to see
them you'll have to stay
up late.
We have a good relationship
that's built on give and 
take,
Thanks, partner, but I'll
finish now as dawn's
about to break.
