How to Lure a Mouse
I hear a mouse under the sink.
I'd poison him, but then he'd stink.
A cold snap's here, so he must think
That I won't mind him there.
I hear him knawing now and then.
He's quite determined to get in.
I need a way of stopping him
For he may be a pair!
I hear the quickest way's a trap
--a guillotine--one mighty: SNAP!
Then, throw him out. That is That!
Too gross...I need some air.
What kind of lure is good for bait?
Let's see there's Choc'late, Cheese--NO! WAIT!
I took too long...God sent a Snake!!
Looks like I'm outta here!
