Ruskie the Raccoon
Followed the guiding light of the moon
Until he saw a red cross
And thought he was the boss
Deciding to play God
Unleashing a deadly glowing rod
Into a place where they care
For sick children who had a scare
Thinking he did right
In this military fight
Ruskie headed down the main street
To take care of his aching feet
Entering a department store
Where they sold shoes on every floor
Purchased a pair that were designer kind
Boots fashionable in Ruskie’s mind
Upon finishing the financial trade
Ruskie bumped into a youngster in the sixth grade
Who had a needle in the hand
Attached to a liquid packet hanging on a metal stand
“Sir, do you know what you did?
Earlier at the hospital that was treating me since I was a kid,
You threw something creating damage
I was lucky to escape and could manage
To escape the ruin
Results from what you were doing”
Ruskie did listen
About his completed successful mission
Nothing to say
Ruskie walked away
Knowing his day was done
Then suddenly a sniper fired off their gun
“I hit the target, what fun”
A child angrily exclaimed
Showing the enemy there was no pain
Seriously injured in the snow
Ruskie was bleeding and had no place to go
Since the clinic infirmary was no longer there
Performing emergency health care.
