Pest Control --- Goodbye

Goodbye, farewell, adieu, please go away, this house is mine. I will not share with you. You see my cabinets as a buffet, pay no rent, and use the floor as your loo. You fail miserably as a roommate, and I’ll be more than glad to see you gone. Sinisterly gleeful about your fate, I’m anxious for the curtains to be drawn. No more ceaseless chattering though the night, nor any more wires cleaved by rodent teeth. I won’t fret on small eyes reflecting light, or creatures hiding in my Christmas wreath. Escape, or, if you prefer, you can die. I don’t care which, as long as it’s Goodbye!
