The Rat


The rat is nimble,
The rat is quick,
A snitch's symbol,
The rat sure is,

Evil doings,
The rat's plans,
Wicked grinning,
Rubbing hands,

Drooling tongue,
Desiring taste,
Motivation smug,
Making haste,

Grabbing a toe,
The man asleep,
Insatiable hunger,
The rat will reap,

Beware at night,
The rat will come,
Out of sight,
Preferring a thumb.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
