You Dirty Rat - Poem by russell coight

I toil in the soil and from seeds that i have sown
summer vegetables and fruits thrive that I have grown

with careful nurture and no chemicals from me
plenty of water some sulfur and manure is all they need

they are growing really well and i'll be harvesting soon
my organic crop is starting to bloom

it's then that I spot you your beady red eyes glowing at night
a huge dirty rat that eats my crop and runs from my sight

I can say oh well your a natural creature a big dirty rat
who is stealing and eating my crop and getting fat

but then theres another natural creature that occurs to me
who view's a dirty rat as a natural enemy

enjoy this crop you dirty rat
as I will soon be getting a pussycat
