You have been terrifying Mrs. Shife for days,
However, I am afraid it is time to change your ways.
I know you like your new home,
But you are giving my wife a panic syndrome.
The traps have been set,
And you will no longer be a threat.
I will be hailed as a hero,
The mouse population should return to zero.
It was a glorious morning as the mouse was caught,
I assumed ending his onslaught.
Outside he was tossed in the rubbish bin,
Our fingers crossed that there was no next of kin.
I know everything sounds super,
Unfortunately, yours truly committed quite a big blooper.
I went to retrieve the trap from the garbage can,
But the mouse was determined to extend his lifespan.
It just so happens that our rodent nuisance was only mostly dead,
It became quite clear when he launched out of the can like a nuclear warhead.
He darted left, then right making a path back to our domicile,
I thought, "Oh no! This is going to make Mrs. Shife quite volatile."
To make matters worse, this will be the first she is hearing of my stupor,
What do you think will happen to me in the future?
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a good week.
