Sits staring

He wants my food

He waits patiently

His gaze is upon me

Expecting me to cave in

Expecting me to surrender

Big brown eyes watching me as I eat

Stealthily creeping, he's within arms reach

How close will he venture before retreat?

He seems comfortable, unafraid

Focused, mind set on stealing food--

Scurry away my little friend

Danger lies in this treat...

Find another meal

Another way

Give up,
