Tommy, Dickie, and Harry

I had to name the squirrel triplets, so Tom, Dick, and Harry came to mind, but then I thought, what if they’re girls or even if one is a girl. I decided that if I find out that they are girls, I can change the names easily enough to Tammy, Dixie, and Harriet.

They were out playing on their version of the Jungle Gym (the woodshed), which includes a great climbing wall.

The Trouble with Triplets – Two Against One

 

Tommy has the top notch place

On a smooth wide ledge,

Every day it is a race,

To maintain his edge.

Dickie says, “I’ll share my lunch,

If I sit by you,

Then I’ll love you a whole bunch,

And enjoy the view.”

“See? There’s room enough for two,

Harry’s left behind,

Now whatever shall we do,

Treat him mean or kind?”

Dickie says, “I’ll go on down,

Tell him there’s no room,

I already see his frown,

Face like doom and gloom.”

“Don’t come up here, Harry dear,

This is just for us,

Be a good boy, be of cheer,

And don’t make a fuss.”

Harry says, “I’m good as you,

I’ll just climb around.

How can I enjoy the view

Down here on the ground?”

Tommy says, “Now don’t be mean,

Don’t make Harry run.

It is better if it’s seen,

That we are as one.”
