This took place before I had Muffin, and yes, these things did happen. Amazing really.
MICE, MICE, MICE
Mice are running in the wall,
‘Round the room and down the hall,
Knock things down to make me fall,
I’ll get them once and for all!
They run all over, but how
Do they get in here right now.
I see them look at my toes,
In bed they stare at my nose.
They eat my food as they will,
But rarely do they sit still.
They jump and squeal on my bed,
Then they will sleep near my head.
This thing, ‘Quiet as a mouse’,
Not if they are in the house.
They are noisy, yes it’s true,
And they will sleep in your shoe.
Do not let them in your place,
They will soon fill every space.
Grab a broom and chase them, or
They will kick you out the door!
