A Mouse's Short Life

My mouse just sat there_not beaming
It would not make the pointer move
I tried to resuscitate
But its power was waning
Batteries would not rejuvenate
Its brain was loose in the USB port
Well, all things go at some time
I was going to bury him but my grandson took him
He came alive again just what he wanted...
I now have a new mouse
Who is lively and excited about being held by me
I am excited to hold him too.........

    I see you were not describing a rodent. On a episode of "The Newlywed Game", Bob Eubanks asked the wives "What is your husband's favorite rodent?" One of the wives had no idea what a rodent was; so she replied "his saxophone"! Good write Sara.

    Sometimes today young people don't know very much about somethings..I guess they did not teach that in science class..Sara

    That little mouse makes sooo much possible. I'm not much for technology, but those flusterating computers... have set me free to have fun, with my poetry.

    I just bought a new mouse myself and appreciate you comments on your new one. I thought you were talking about the little creatures which appear now and then in house and labs when I first read your title Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Ha ha, at first I thought this poem was about a real living mouse...then I quickly found out to the contrary! You have written this illustrious poem quite masterfully, you kept me glued to this piece! What a delightful poem, Great Work!!
