You Doity Rat - Poem by Juan Olivarez

A fat old rat wanted a hole,
that was the home of marty the mole.
He tried to squeeze in the front door,
but that only made his belly sore.

So he tried to go around the back,
and ran into a mouse named jack.
who was a friend of marty the mole,
that was the owner of the hole.

Jack told the rat, i just can't see,
marty giving up his hole to me,
much less to you a big fat rat,
your'e big enough to scare the cat.

Marty the mole came from his hole,
and said, you know what iv'e been told,
that you are just a doity rat,
and if i were you i'd surely scat.

I'll kick your butt from here to there,
i'll make your'e rounded butt look square,
you may be big you may be fat,
but my best friend is louie the bat.

You think i'm scared of a bat?
said the fat and doity rat,
i'm tuff and hard and i'll tell you,
i'm a rat that knows kung-fu.

Kung-fu, youre a silly rat,
i'd rather have louie the bat,
was what marty the mole replied,
and pulled a ' louisville slugger' from inside.

The rat backed off so terrified,
i thought you meant the kind that flies,
and marty said you'd better scat,
or i'll womp you upside of the head.

The doity rat ran off alone,
and marty asked jack to his home,
they went inside and had a beer,
and laughed till they were both in tears.
