Mouse House

who out foxed who?....
    a fox chases field mice
        into the house

mouse invasion....
    Normandy, the cat, smacks lips
      while on night duty

the sound of vagrants....
   two different worlds are living
       just floorboards apart

silence of the lambs....
   scurrying feet on attic floor
       wakes man counting sheep
  
an angry farmwife...
   a carving knife is missing
      from the kitchen drawer

a tail-less mouse....
    angry rodent chases the
        farmer and his wife

three blind-sighted mice
   run up the grandfather clock....
     grandma reads nursery rhymes

new fangled mouse trap
   is set with a piece of cheese...
       dinner was a snap

cow jumps over moon....
   no creatures were stirring
       not even a mouse

Dedicated to "a mouse goes "squeak" !!  For Skat !!

Mother's  looks, hung head
 
A golden casket planning
 
Grandfather is dead…
