The Escapee

Josiah left the little critter cage
Open at its door.
Little Charlie hamster knew
and climbed down to the floor.
Little Charlie hamster 
Made a daring escape.
He slid down the banister
And shimmied up the drape.
Josiah finally noticed 
The little rascal gone.
He made a panic search
Feeling sad for for what he'd done.
He looked in all the corners
And under the covers on the bed.
He ran downstairs to take a look
While Charlie watched from overhead.
Josiah shook his head
He knew not what to do.
He couldn't tell his Dad
Or charlie hamster would be through.
Suddenly Charlie lost his balance
And gave himself away.
He tried to scamper down the drapes 
And Josiah saved the day.
