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 Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
