Fred Alvis


cute miniature rat,
getting overly fat,
eating every crumb,
rat, but miniature bum.

you little hog,
your starving the dog.
not only that,
your starving the cat.

the carpet you comb,
eating me out of house and home.
I’ll end this deal,
with a peanut butter pill.

put out the trap,
waiting for a snap.
the early bird gets the worm;
the second mouse to the trap gets the cheese.
