Oh Ye Rats

Oh, the blithering allies full of pests
rats! With their creeping paws and slimy nests
they screech and moan and scare
while dragging everything to their lair
nothing if not full of zest
are rats, the one major pest!

I met a rat a time ago
an ugly fat creature...Albino!
sweeping back it's hairless tail
it pointed at me with a greusome nail!
flashing teeth he crept away
and me not wanting to be led astray
tried and failed to stay on the path
(only not to invoke his ancient wrath)
followed him down his trail
while feeling like I was being led to jail

After a while, we had to stop
opening his mouth, he clucked his tongue with a pop
then pointed at himself and said
words with a tongue blood red
words! words! exactly three
"I'm ancient rat", said he

The rat smiled grimly and dragged me away
I did not all want to play 
in the dark abyss shpaed like a door
so grabbing a stick, I hit him with a roar
It writhed! It writhed! with pain galore
I ran away so he could not give more

So what you have learned 
hopefully where rats are concerned
is to never stray off a path 
might as well invoke the wrath
the be led away by the ancient rat
where you will likely be sat
in a dark place you'd rather not
be kept down there to rot
alone! alone! with a rat
an albino and one that's fat!
so stay away from them and their nests
and most of all them the pests!

Oh dear! Oh rats!
