House mouse house

Updated on May 19, 2012

I can hear the unsettling sound of a mouse

As it runs around freely all through my house

Sometimes in the kitchen I can hear it squeak

And wish that I could yell at it in mouse speak

At night I can hear it moving through the walls

And I lie awake hearing noise that apalls

Sometimes my wife and I just sit there on the couch

While the mouse eats our pizza and acts like a grouch

Sometimes I lay out mousetraps and feel sure we will snare it

If this goes on much longer I'm not sure we'll bare it!

Sometimes I take sledgehammers and create holes

To dig that mouse out with hooks and with poles

That thing drives me crazy! It won't go away!

No matter what evidence I bring or say

Sometimes we just sit there and don't make a sound

While that stupid rodent keeps running around

Why won't it see reason? Why won't it just go?

Why is it so stubborn? We'd both like to know!

We've yelled and harangued and cajoled and insulted

And no good result has as yet resulted

But I'll show that mouse yes finally he'll see

We will destroy the house and at last we'll be free!
