How To Kill A Rat

A rat; an animal larger than a mouse
With large ears and pointed snout
A dangerous one
It lives in human habitation
Though survives in different adaptation

A rat, a faithful company
Lives with you and dines from you
Here and there
Helter skelter
It never stays away from you

Sometimes you wonder
A creature, seemingly harmless and innocent
Could gnaw through wooden planks
Causing major damages
Yet leaving no trails on its tail

A nocturnal animal, of course
Darkness accommodates so many evils
As the day reveals the damages
So patient so cunning
Attributes of this great company
A rat indeed!

It is found everywhere
Even a clean home appeals to a rat
Cant it just leave it peaceful?
I ask
Oh! How I hate it!

Hurt, embittered, betrayed
Knowing for sure it's a rat's doing
Smash it? Hit it? Burn it?
How to kill a rat
I become curious

Lo! How to kill a rat
You bait it
Pretend you are not paying attention
Feed her with her favorite meal
For in what she does best
Lies her end
Her agony
