Shades of Grey #1

 101/365 Coffee Pot
 
Like a small grey
 coffee-pot,
 sits the squirrel.
 He is not

 all he should be,
 kills by dozens
 trees, and eats
 his red-brown cousins.

 The keeper on the
 other hand,
 who shot him, is
 a Christian, and

 loves his enemies,
 which shows
 the squirrel was not
 one of those.

  2. Do you know if that really true about eating red squirrels? How would they a gray ever catch a red?
