do not feed the animals

in my yard
possum-329342_960_720opossums feast
on anything
that pleases them
blooming bulbs
abandoned toys
most anything
appeases them
so if you venture
out one night
bring a sandwich
and a light
the light will keep them
back a bit
they have a little
fear of it
and while you’re watching
what they do
the sandwich is for you

this verse wasn’t here before the Daily prompt – feast
but it was hungry for the Daily prompt – sandwich
if you liked it you might like some of these
