The Mouse is a Rat - Show Me the Funny II

The mouse in our house is a rat,
I'm now quite certain of that.
It's not little and cute,
It's long and uncouth.
Can't wait til I hear it go splat!

11/16/12
(An apology to all animal lovers. I really do not
want to kill it. I love animals too. I just want the
germy rodent out of my house, and I want him to 
stay gone!)

    I loved limericks as a child this brought back memories, and it was well done.

    This struck me quite funny.. I like the sentiment you put within your words here. I hope the rats all are gone now.. :D

    I couldn't help but smile after I read your limerick. Hope your "friend" has permanently disappeared.

    Ah, frustration let loose and what better place than here to vent your frustation. I sympathize because my horror story is much worse than yours. Splat! Love, Lizzie

    I like your limerick and your sentiment. I've got a live trap I'll loan you - I was told to deposit the culprit at least one mile from home or they will return.

    Hey, you got to do what you got to do. Well written - it gives a vivid scenario and the angst brought about by the mouse turned rat.
