Requiem for Squirrel

"Dies Ire, dies illa, solvet seclum in favilla" *

My friend sqrll died today
He's buried in the ground
And muzzer had the pipers come
While we all gathered 'round.

They played that song, " Amazing Grace "
And everyone did cry
Poor sqrll is in a better place
The rainbow bridge on high.


*From the Tridentine Latin Mass for the Dead

Hey Bussie! You were from Maryland? I'm from Maryland! And we look a lot alike- hey, we could be brothers, or not. Anyway, who was yuor foster mommy? I have a little foster brother right now too, named Ajax. He's cute and I like him. He's just a baby too. Anyway, very cool that we were so close!

Poor Sqrrl is dead
Poor Sqrrlie is dead
All gather round his coffin now & cry
He had a heart of gold
And he wasn't very old
Oh why did such a sqrrl have to die?

Poor Sqrrl is dead
Poor Sqrrlie is dead
He's lookin oh so peaceful and serene
He's all laid out to rest
With his paws acrost his chest
His fur is gone and all picked clean

Sniff sniff
