I Set Out Mousetraps
I set out mousetraps
Not expecting to catch a robber
But I did.
He was a big fellow, full grown
Nigh onto fifty probably.
Wore a mask.
Before I released him I asked him to take it off.
And he was rude.
So I made him stay in the kitchen.
And I went back to bed.
Hoping he would change his mind.
By morning he was gone, took my mousetrap too.
Left my front door wide open.
Ruder than rude.
I was thinking this as I sat in my recliner
And reached for my remote.
It was gone, and my TV was gone too.
I hope to never catch that robber again!
