A Rat's Tale
and post notes and photos about your poem like Keith Trestrail.
My two pet rats so cheeky and slight,
One brown and one black and white,
Who live only a short age
Rattlin' around in their cage!
I love their soft smooth coats
And large bulbous scrotes,
That long ratty tail that grows -
Big eyes and ears and twitchin' nose!
Jumpin' and playin' and runnin' -
So adventurous and so cunnin'!
Always fastidiously cleanin',
Primpin' and groomin' and preenin',
Or on the loose goin' AWOL
In the lounge room or down the hall
Busy chasin' and busy hurryin',
And busy climbin', hidin' and scurryin'!
Hear them up the Christmas Tree
Jinglin' and janglin' - a joy to see,
Or on the sofa playful and bolder
Huddlin' on my shoulder,
Scamperin' down my shirt and sleeve
Furry heads in and out weave,
Yes, truly I am a lover of all
God's creatures great and small.
My gorgeous little rats so loved by me...
One called Hunter, one called Karmy!
Dedicated to my two wonderful rats,
Hunter and Karmichael.
