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.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
