too many leaves, too little nuts

the squirrel used hyperbole
leaves-10740_960_720to charm the nuts out of the tree
effectively, apparently
but the leaves came tumbling too
and now there is a moving mass
a chain of mountains on the grass

i’m not sure what to do

every now and then it juts

too many leaves, too little nuts
heaps of leaves are shuddering
with him inside there, muttering
now i will need hyperbole
to charm the squirrel from the leaves
or he’ll be six feet deep
beneath the compost heap
