Epitaph

An Epitaph for Delilah, sugar glider of unknown age:

Delilah had a hard life before we got her, full of people who did not know how to house, keep, or feed a sugar glider. When she first came to us, she did not like us at all, but time and love won her over. Delilah had a funny habit of never jumping anywhere but rather flinging herself from place to place. She used to nibble my fingers to verify that I had not spontaneously become cantaloupe or grapes. On Delilah’s last night, she curled up in my lap and went to sleep. She was with us for almost 5 years. Good-bye my sweet, dainty girl.

Delilah is survived by her partner Samson, their son Puck, and her loving parents, Jane and Mr. Rochester.

    I am not much on words, I leave that to my counterpart, as if I could get a word in anyways. I feel I should say something about my precious little girl.

    She was always so fragile but so crazy. Much like all women. She was too timid and too gentle to fight with boys over silly things like food. But when she was in one of her moods she was the terror of the town and what she says, goes. I will miss her.
