Household

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
