The Possum Who Was Really Dead

Big ol’ possum on the side of the house,
Are you messing with me?

It’s the middle of the day
And it’s been raining harder than ever for hours.
You’ve got to be dead, with that sunken eye.

And last night you kept coming around to the glass door,
But only when Hannah played that one piece on the piano.
