Do you burrow like William Seward Burroughs?

Groundhog, do you burrow like William Seward Burroughs?

In a windowless bunker at 222 Bowery? (back in the bad old days on Bowery)
Chipmunk, do you burrow like William S. Burroughs?birdland Boro Cooling and Heating, LLC,
you provide comfort to the houses of suburbia
and the great obese marshmallow pillows.
Chirp, Bird, and blow like Birdland,
Or birdbrain.
Squirrels, do you support unemployed poets?
Do you squat at the ghats like the Bard from Paterson?
Great Falls of the Passaaaaic,
Doest thou contain the eternal tears of the souls of old silk city?
Bard, did you have the last interesting life on Earth?
Before home improvements became the great American obsession?
