Furry tail in our bin


I switched on the light
It was the dead of night
As you dreamed undisturbed by my side

I had heard a growl
It was more than a miaow
As a streetlight flickered in the trees

You slept without care
Was a stranger out there?
Making disturbing sounds by the drive

Decided to check
Snatched my robe from the door
I'm off to investigate out there

Talk of the devil
Furry tail in our bin
Not shy stealing bread for her joeys

Possums babies like kangaroos are called joeys and adults are common backyard thieves in Australia.
