A mouse in the house with five cats in it;
You’d think any sensible mouse would split—
But no; five cats plus a plug-in pest eradicator
Still let a mouse slip in like a non-paying spectator!
It wouldn’t be so bad
If this was the only mouse we had—
But this one makes Number Four
Of all the others we’ve had before.
However, our cats are much too picky
To soil their teeth with a creature so icky
They only want to chase it and play—
I’m the one who wants the dang thing to go away!
