Household? More like a mouse-hold

But they’ve been told you can’t mold


Cardboard into a glass cage

Sudden rage at the rampage


Cut out the light and hold tight

Sudden moves cause sudden fright


And then flight; wait moments right

Just hold the light, he won’t bite


One-man animal control

Patrol, cajole, sweep and roll


Hope fades to black

Then with a smack


He’s trapped against the wall

It’s over, after all 


Yet they’ve already been told

So it will surely unfold


In a similar way by the end of the day

Next time they can pay for a more permanent way


Or hey, just let them play

It’s not my place to say


So I must simply fold

Welcome to the mouse-hold
