Poem from Mom "Ode to a Mouse"

January 24, 2009

“Ode to a Mouse”

the cats were celebrating
truely not negating
on their porch at dawn
out near the lawn
thumping and jumping
a knock at the door
what was the matter
what was it for
for them to make
such a patter chatter
when we opened to see
there on the doormat
actually quite flat
as plain as could be
laid a mouse truely dead
dragged from its bed
chewed to oblivion
never to live again
the cats were so proud
purring out loud
for the little mouse
we have sorrow
he has no tomorrow
he gave up his lease
and is now
resting in peace
