A Weird Squirrel Story

I once saw a dead squirrel.

It’s face was looking up at me.
It’s not what you think,
If only you could have saw,
There were beetles on its face,

And insects in its maw,
It was horrific,
It was just there,
And all of us kids,
Couldn’t help but stare,

Then we walked on by,
And something ate its eye.
