Treasure Island

David Darbyshire

(6/11/54 / Darwen England)

Mouse Trap

In my quiet cozy little house
I seem to have inherited a mouse
the small guy says hi everyday
But I think I want him out the way

I keep seeing out the corner of my eye
A flash of brown that darts by
I don't know were he gets all his energy from
I suppose he's got his nose in my cookie drum

So I went to the shop to get a mouse trap
Not the kind with a piece of cheese and a snap
The one were you can catch him, then release
Now I hope the taking of my cookies will cease

    Well, you're alot nice than me Dave! I have to admit I like the sound of that SNAP! Gosh that sounds evil doesn't it? ? But, I like to know I don't have to be afraid anymore. :) Cute poem Dave. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    A mouse? Cheese? Very apt for Amsterdam. And like the others, I am glad you went for the humane version of a mouse-trap, Dave. Nice little friendly poem, this.

    Love, Fran the Fan xx (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
