He killed one hundred and thirty-one squirrels
In a single season (a dog of honor who wouldn’t lie
Where one squirrel digit too many be false);
And I said, “Pick your ears, listen! hark to me!
Should a single squirrel remain, the final one,
In the forests of the world, would you gun for it,
Go for it plumb, scour universe if you could?”
And he said (spoke in honest frankness),
“I sure would.”
