,Poem~ EEEK! Mouse In the House!~

One mouse in the house 
Two mice in the garage
Three mice in the barn
By Gerardine Baugh

 

Surrounded by farm land, and

Open fields of untouched soil

Winter is cold wet and frozen

Spring brings a thaw of rains, and  

Flood waters and open creeks

Those swell to streams

And then…they come into the house

One mouse in the house
Two mice in the garage
Three mice in the barn

How tempting a treat to a cat

Hawk or coyote

In a pet shop

You are worth a couple of dollars

To me your cost is closer to a thousand

To fix the damage, when

You, you tiny rodent

built a condo inside my car

Within the air ducts and around the engine

One mouse in the house
Two mice in the garage
Three mice in the barn

Time for Feisty Sanosuke, Kenshin, and PJ

To play with those Sweet little mice

In the garage,

Furry and fat scamper off my walls

I hear your nails scratching, and

your teeth gnawing

Your days are numbered

One mouse in the house
Two mice in the garage
Three mice in the barn

I have to insist,  give up your license

To my car, and my house

Your cash is shredded in this years nest

And plastic is not accepted

So run, run little furry mouse

Sanosuke, Kenshin and PJ want to play,

Tomoe just wants to watch

I will set out sticky traps

And search in every corner

One mouse in the house
Two mice in the garage
Three mice in the barn

Are just one too many mice in my life…

    1. anthonynorth,
      This was the first draft, I should have sat on it for a few hours, but I was angry at the mice. LOL!
      Having reread it I can see a lot that editing could help.

  1. You are such a brave lady.. I am scared of mices and mouses.
    Used to have one… at my other home..and I can see it walking from one side of the house to the other as I watched tv! Can you imagine? Then one day, when my youngest daughter saw it by the fridge, she screamed her heart out and it ran off… never see him again! WOOT!
    Have you a blessed weekend, Gerardine.

    hugs
    shakira
