The Rats(Part1) - Poem by Arnee Akpan

Rat! Rat! Rat!
Some call us weak and dirty
But we are a part of God's creation

Rat! Rat! Rat!
We are hated by the men of the light
But we are creatures of the night

Rat! Rat! Rat!
Children fear us
Because to them we are terror and agents of horrors

Rat! Rat! Rat!
Though men may defeat us by day
But we will always fight back at night
We will never give up
Even though it turns into A CLASH OF THE TITANS

Rat! Rat! Rat!
You men ar selfish and have refused to lend us meal
But we will never starve
Because we always know the routes to your pots with our mental maps

Rat! Rat! Rat!
Sometimes we could destroy
Husbands shout at their wives because of us

Rat! Rat! Rat!
We gnawed at their foot or bite them while they snore

Rat! Rat! Rat!
Though men may fight and destroy themselves,
We will always stick together in brotherhood, peace and unity around your corners.
