Cats & Mouse


I have enough reason to grouse
For the cats in our house
Can’t catch the mouse!
My family is quite panic-stricken
As it runs amok in our kitchen
That little brat!
Each thing it gnaws and nibbles
Quickly hides cleverly dribbles
Nowhere are the cats!
It’s irksome it plays so cool
As if our cats are bunch of fools
The mouse is a real genius!
It has made the kitchen its hearth
Run and frolic in mischief’s mirth
Make look our cats genuine ass!
Lapping milk gorging fish
The lazy cats never wish
To go after the mouse!
If you ask we rid it how
‘Go get one mousetrap now’
Says my spouse!

    Do not expell
    This lazy cat,
    That's grown so sleek,
    That's grown so fat;
    Observe the wisdom
    In my eyes,
    As I lie
    You temporalize;
    True I constitute
    no mortal threat
    To that rat
    That so upsets;
    But since that visit
    To that Vet;
    I mourn my testes
    With regret (Report) Reply

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
