Poem: The End of Moose and Squirrel

BorisnatashaMost days I sit in rocking chair on porch outside my dacha
I throw back vodka shots and reminisce with my Natasha
But while inside my alcoholic brain fond memories swirl
I still have dream to someday bring an end to moose and squirrel

Those two! I hear they’re doing well and living in Orlando
While I starve on the pension of a soviet commando
I give no heed while comrades their pathetic insults hurl
I have a plan! A plan that spells the end for moose and squirrel

Boris will prove once more he’s still a no-goodnik’s no-goodnik
I’ll lie and cheat and steal and show them this dog’s got a new trick
I’d sacrifice it all to gain that greatly valued pearl
That I might live to see at last the end of moose and squirrel
